Protecting and Valuing Identity - College

An ethical approach to supporting a digital life

The S2e Mission: Physical Safety and Psychological Wellbeing.

To provide students with education that protects them today and helps them act with thought for their own futures, safeguarding their opportunities to find suitable employment along with protecting their reputations.

To develop both the understandings and the skills required to use the Internet appropriately in order to reduce the chances for harm to occur to the student, their family and friends.

Teaching young people how to protect an employer’s online identity as well as their own. Preparing students for employment before they become employees is vital in a digital world. Today’s young graduates have large online social networks, multiple blog accounts, multiple profiles created and forgotten about and numerous other online accounts.

Educating young people about the importance of social media policies and how to manage online communication when inside or outside the organisations perimeter is vital as it protects both the employer and the employee.
