CyberFirst and North East Schools


Wednesday 25 November 2020, 4.00 - 5.00pm


An event aimed at computer subject teachers and careers guidance to promote the National Cybersecurity Centre’s CyberFirst programme


CyberFirst is a programme of opportunities to help young people aged 11 - 17 years explore their passion for tech by introducing them to the fast paced world of cyber security.

CyberFirst covers a broad range of activities: a comprehensive bursary scheme to financially support undergraduates through university and a degree apprenticeship scheme; a girls' only competition and thousands of free places on CyberFirst courses at UK universities and colleges. There’s even Cyber Discovery; our online extracurricular programme. Each activity is designed to seek out people with potential, offering the support, skills, experience and exposure needed to be the future first line of defence in our CyberFirst world.
