Kangan Institute and Arabic Welfare partner for E-Safe Expo

Kangan Institute is proud to host E-Safe Expo – an event designed to unravel some of the complex questions surrounding the rapacious growth of the internet and our roles in protecting ourselves from its less palatable aspects. Whilst the focus of E-Safe Expo reflects its timing during Gambling Awareness Week, the event also seeks to cover online safety and espouse mental health awareness.

The single day expo aims to answer the following:

  • What we need to do to be safe on electronic devices?
  • What is gambling on the internet?
  • What is the relationship between gaming and gambling?
  • Risk to ourselves and our children on electronic devices?
  • How to ensure our children are safe on electronic devices?
  • The importance of recreation and healthy lifestyle choices for our families

This series of information sessions will be delivered by Arabic Welfare, Gamblers Help, Victorian Police, Northern Legal Centre, Anglicare and Headspace. Offering up to date advice and powerful insights, E-Safe Expo aims to build ties with local organisations to strengthen community partnerships, while assisting audiences grappling with the sometimes daunting world of cyberspace.

When: Thursday, 26 October
Time: 9:30am – 2pm
Where: Kangan Institute – Student Cafeteria Area Peacedale Parade, Broadmeadows

At a time when online safety is particularly prevalent given the increasingly interconnected world we live in and young people are becoming progressively exposed to an open and collaborative online culture, events such as E-Safe Expo seek to highlight how to make this exponentially growing world a safer one.

E-Safe Expo is proudly sponsored by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation, and incorporated as part of the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP). AMEP provides eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants with up to 510 hours of free English language learning and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

Kangan Institute currently has over 600 students enrolled in the AMEP program.
