Education Breakfast Briefing: Social Media Challenges

November 7 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Following the continued success of our Breakfast Briefings, Rollits and YoungPlus Limited are delighted to announce the third series of briefings for education sector leaders and those responsible for governance of the sector, which are FREE to attend. The sessions cover exemplar case studies and legal considerations to ensure compliance with your obligations and manage possible risk. In addition, we give a very practical strategic and operational view of each topic from the perspective of leaders within the sector. These ‘bite size’ opportunities for continuing professional development and learning aim to give a practical training resource to enable a wider number of professionals in your organisation to benefit from the information shared.

Part 1 – Successful leadership in the complex world of social media platforms!

With half of all nine-year-olds owning a smart phone, platforms lowering their recommended ages for registration and 98% of UK adults owning a mobile or smart phone – what are the implications for employers, employees, learners, parents and wider stakeholders with regard to social media use and the risks associated for your organisation?

In this session hear about the myriad of challenges and considerations to ensure you are ahead of the curve and able to actively manage the difficulties of communication in a digital world.
