About Jess McBeath
I specialise in online safety and digital citizenship in Scotland. I keep up to date with the latest research and tech trends, as well as ensuring I understand the child protection and digital skills agendas in Scotland. My focus is on helping young people here in Scotland to thrive and survive online.
I advise organisations and teams on their knowledge, policy and practice. As an independent specialist, I can point to the best resources for your needs and I tailor my training to your audience. Being independent also means that I provide excellent prices as well as low travel costs (I live just outside Edinburgh). I am experienced at translating resources used elsewhere into a Scottish context, or creating resources for use in Scotland. I maintain a strong network across the public, private and voluntary sectors. This helps ensure I’m up-to-date and linked into key developments nationally and internationally. I work with, and on behalf of, a wide variety of organisations – see the Events page.
As well as being a member of AACOSS (Association of Adult and Child Online Safety Specialists), I am also a CEOP Ambassador, an Online Safety Mark Accredited Assessor and a Digital Schools Awards Validator. I have been awarded the NSPCC Childhood Champion Award as Schools Volunteer for Scotland 2018 and deliver their Speak Out Stay Safe pupil workshops and parents online safety workshops. I am a board member of Borders College Regional Board. My qualifications are a first class degree in Linguistics & Artificial Intelligence and an MBA (distinction).
