Staying safe online

Being able to access learning online is a fantastic way to continue and enjoy learning that cannot be delivered face to face, or to begin learning something new for the first time. It is important to make sure you also remain safe online.

Online scams take place when criminals use the internet to try to con people into giving them money or personal information. Fraudsters are known to make calls claiming to be from well known and official organisations when its actually a scam. They may ask you for personal information, want access to your computer and in some cases, ask for your bank details. Don't be fooled, this could be fraud.

You should be wary of any unsolicited emails or calls that ask you to provide personal information or ask for access to your computer on devices. Anyone receiving an email that seems suspicious in any way, should never click on links or attachments and never respond to unsolicited messages that ask for their personal or financial details. People should also be wary of unsolicited phone calls asking for personal information or offering help with your online services and devices.

Please note: Staffordshire Community Learning and our learning providers would only call back a learner or potential new learner following on from a voicemail or email enquiry you have made.

If you receive a communication out of the blue from anyone claiming to be associated with Staffordshire Community Learning or an associated Learning provider and which raises your suspicions. Then hang up, and call back only on our service phone number which is 01785 278770.
