Who is Internet Safe Education?

Our programs lead in the field of internet education and awareness and are delivered to school communities, public groups, corporate teams and government organisations in the workplace, and at conference or seminar environments. Delivered internationally, our training programs reach over 100,000 people each year.
Internet Safe Education also provides a community where parents, carers and those interested in the health, safety and well-being of children in an online environment can access the most credible, up to date resources available worldwide. Our simple yet powerful advice will have a positive impact on how your family lives within the digital world.
The unique quality and aspects of Internet Safe Education’s approach are a result of the experience of former detective Brett Lee who worked as a Queensland Police Officer for 22 years, 16 of which as a detective in the field of Child Exploitation. Brett has been personally involved with the interview, location, arrest and prosecution of hundreds of online criminals and predators. Nobody else in Australia can offer programs with this level of credibility or insight whereby the learning outcomes can not be denied.
In his investigative role, Brett spent years and thousands of hours using the internet under the guise of fictitious children and adults, both male and female. This unprecedented view of the online world enables Brett to view the cyber world through the eyes of a child yet stand back and process this experience with the mind of an adult.
This knowledge has been formulated into clear learning messages within our training programs and presentations. The world behind the screen is revealed like never before, normalising the basic yet essential outcomes.
