NCSC launch the CyberFirst Schools Programme in Wales

Do you work in, or do you have connections with a local school?

NCSC would like your help to bring as many schools as we can into this crucial programme.

Discover what the CyberFirst Schools Programme is doing for young people interested in cyber security.

Since 2018, the NCSC has been piloting a Cyber Schools Hub (CSH) programme in Gloucestershire. The CSH has encouraged collaboration between local schools, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), national and local companies and organisations who share the aim of encouraging young people to engage with computer science and the application of cyber security in every day technology.

The CSH pilot has proved to be successful at a local level and the NCSC now wishes to increase the scale of ambition and formally recognise schools who are committed to providing a structured approach to excellence in cyber security education.

The CyberFirst Schools Programme will initially be limited to schools in Gloucestershire and Wales.
