Cyber Bullying Policy

ICT in the 21st Century is seen as an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in our everyday lives. Consequently, Chiltern Training needs to build in the use of these technologies in order to arm our young people with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.
