Over the past school year, VodafoneZiggo has provided digital skills for over 100,000 students under its Online Masters program. This is a free curriculum about the digital world, intended for the upper classes of primary education and lower secondary education. In addition, the operator this year received almost 2,000 children for an Experience Day. The youngsters got a look behind the scenes at VodafoneZiggo.

The Online Masters is given by teachers themselves, with the modules digitally introduced by experts in various fields. More than 250 employees of VodafoneZiggo have attended one or more classes during the past school year. Experience Day takes place every month, for about 200 children.

The free curriculum consists of four modules: the digital world, creative and competent online, safe online and consciously online. Online Masters has been developed in collaboration with ECP/VeiligInternetten.nl and Mediawijzer.net. The program is regularly supplemented with current topics.

With the new GDPR in effect, Online Masters has added an extra level of 'Personal Data & Privacy'. Here, young people have to talk to each other about privacy and what this law means to them. 

Online Masters will also be available in the 2018/2019 school year.
