We are delighted to have our National Scratch Competition open and to let you know about a cybersecurity project for secondary schools, we hope you can get involved.
Cybersecurity for secondary schools
Information event and pilot schools sought for new innovative cybersecurity module.
BeCyberPro is a project dedicated to bridging the skills and gender gaps in the cybersecurity sector, by inspiring students, empowering teachers, and involving parents.
The project aims to reduce the gender gap in the cybersecurity industry by bringing together private companies and higher education institutions in the sector in cooperation with schools. The project supports schools in promoting cybersecurity careers to students and their parents by developing their problem-solving skills to respond to challenges; developing an on-line training course (for both teachers and students) and virtual reality-based games, while highlighting the positive role women play in ICT and showcasing the career opportunities in cybersecurity.
Initally there will be an online information session for teachers leading onto a workshop for all interested teachers. To book your place visit ICS website.
