CEOP Ambassador Course

Course Aims

The Ambassador course is more in-depth than the Thinkuknow Introduction. It covers a wide range of areas, including:

  •           The nature of online offending against children
  •           How offenders use the online environment
  •           How young people use the internet and mobile technology
  •           Risk taking behaviour of young people online, including digital footprints and sexting
  •           School and organisational responses and policy in this area

On completion of the course, you will be able to download training materials which you can then use to train fellow professionals to deliver the Thinkuknow education programme to children and young people.

International Delegates

We do not wish to discriminate against children and young people based outside of the UK and are keen to share the messages of our films more widely. However, as a UK agency, we must prioritise delegate requests from within the United Kingdom. Any practitioners from outside of the UK who are interested in attending an event should email CEOP’s Education Team at mail to: education@nca-ceop.gsi.gov.uk to register their interest. The email should state which course they would like to attend and confirm that they meet our eligibility criteria. Should spaces be available on the specified course 7 days ahead of the event you will be contacted by email to be offered a place.

International training delegates should also be aware that CEOP is unable to certify international delegates as CEOP Thinkuknow Trainers or CEOP Ambassadors. It should also be noted that international access to CEOP’s Thinkuknow resources is limited due to licensing agreements in place which are specific to the United Kingdom.

Delegate Criteria and Cost

The CEOP Ambassador course costs £199 for delegates to attend.
