On 21 November, our Merton Adult Learning department invited Merton Council Trading Standards to visit the College and speak to our learners about Internet Safety and Scam Protection.
As one of the many London Boroughs, the City is seeing an increase in both the number and variety of scams and we want our learners to be aware of them.
The workshop was well attended and contents included personal safety, door step scams, mail scams and phone scams.
All participants took in the excellent information and advice, and some of the course reps will cascade the tips to their co-learners. Merton Trading Standards also gave participants flyers with useful phone numbers and websites.
On behalf of Merton College, Merton Adult Learning wants to thank Merton Trading Standards for the tips and have invited them again for further workshops in the new year.
Stay safe and watch this space!
