How to stay safe online

As we use technology more during this time of remote learning, it's more important than ever to stay safe online. Please be assured that West Herts College is continuing to ensure that appropriate filters and monitoring systems are in place to protect students when online on the college’s IT systems or recommended resources, such as Canvas and Microsoft Teams.

Online safety away from college

We encourage the use of technology, not only to enhance students’ learning experience but also to promote skills and achievement. We also understand that our students use the internet during periods of downtime and to enjoy whilst relaxing. Below we have compiled some Government advice on how to stay safe online.
