What is Online Compass?
Online Compass is a simple tool that shows you what you need to do to make the use of technology safer for your group. Once you rate where you are, it gives you advice on how to improve and the means to get you there.
Who is it for?
Online Compass is for any group that works with young people. If you are from a school, 360 degree safe may be more suitable.
Why use it?
Online Compass is a free, powerful tool designed by award-winning online safety experts, that simplifies a difficult task. It maps where you are, charts your progress and navigates a course to a safer online environment.
Following the success of the 360 degree safe, schools e-safety self-review tool, SWGfL identified a need to support a wider range of organisations that work with children with a similar free of charge self review tool.
The tool has already helped hundreds of organisations with many reporting that they have found the tool easy to use and understand. Its success has now been recognised in being shortlisted for two major national awards – the ISPA Awards and the Nominet Awards.
