At the end of these training sessions, it is expected that participants would have a thorough comprehension of the subject matter pertaining to child online protection. 


In particular, participants will: 

  • memorize and distinguish the COP guidelines and what they entail; 
  • recognize the 4C classification system for various risks that can be encountered online; 
  • Identify the distinct forms of OCSEA and comprehend the processes that lead to their emergence.

  • acquire and memorize skills in teaching, learning, and delivering effective training on COP; 
  • apply advanced training design skills in preparing replicable training sessions relevant to COP. 


  • Solution-wise: 


At the end of these training sessions, it is expected that participants would have a complete understanding of their own role in the protection of children online and would be able to respond to harmful online incidents. 


In particular, participants will:

  • remember and be able to use relevant resources for further guidance and support. 


The training lasts one day and includes several types of theory, different activities, and group, individual, and plenary work. The maximum number of participants for each training is 50, in order to maintain optimal conditions for learning and participation. The training certification scheme consists of three main phases: (i) Completion of two online courses for participants to acquire the same knowledge basis; (ii) One-day onsite training; (iii) Submission of final assignment validating the knowledge acquired and ability to provide effective training.

The knowledge acquired during the training will be validated through a final assignment. The final assignment consists in writing a detailed outline and partial content for training on Child Online Protection that they aim to deliver in their local contexts.


Outline: This should contain the following parts: introduction/background, context, gaps/challenges in their specific working context, the scope of the training, and the rationale of the chosen instructional approach proposed for implementation.  methodology.  


Content: The participant will choose a part of the training (or the full training, if desired) and develop the full content (script) and the visual aid (PPT or other) for the training.


Only participants directly trained by ITU and that have successfully completed all phases of the training, passed the final evaluation, and have been awarded the ITU certificate of completion are considered ITU-certified COP trainers. These are allowed to use ITU materials and branding (including logos) in their pieces of training. The participants trained by them will not have any connection with ITU.

Completing the two online courses and attending the onsite training account for 50% of the final grade (1 or 0). The assignment is graded on 100%. Overall, a total minimum score of 70% is required to obtain an ITU certificate. The grading of the assignment is accompanied by instructor feedback.
