The Internet and all digital technology is now an essential part of our lives, providing many positive experiences for families and teachers, and it is being used at an ever-younger age.
Cybersafety is an extraordinarily important pre-requisite for making the most of the opportunities offered by the Internet, so it is absolutely important to become aware of and master the techniques and tools to ensure safe navigation, avoiding information theft and identity, from external attacks or malware intrusion. Without our involvement (parents and teachers), children are left to self regulate in a world that is not moderated.
Objectives: The goal of cyber security training is to educate users about the potential risks they face when surfing the Internet, using communication tools such as social media, downloading applications, using e-mail, online games, and accessing potentially dangerous sites.
In short, the main objective of the course is to help participants understand clearly the importance of online safety, learning to recognize potential threats and impacts as well as adopting good browsing practices, defend against cyber attacks, respond to emergencies.
Vulnerability to malware attacks, as well as identity theft, can be considerably reduced when educated users about these risks.
Course Duration and Costs
All costs can be supported with a KA grant under the Erasmus+ programme.
For a 6-day course, Learning Together charges 580 euros per participant (A+B).
For our 6-day course, the course fee is 480 EUR per participant, for tuition and materials (6-day course x 80,00 EUR per day). This can be covered with the course fee that you receive with your KA1 grant: 80 EUR / day / person.
The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.
Payment of 100 EUR per participant (total amount).
This fee also includes our social program, which you can see below.
In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according project type (job-sadowing, long-term,…).
