Inspiring talented young people into cyber security careers #CyberFirst

23-Jan-2019
The Bett Arena
21 Century Skills
There's a shortage of Cyber Security Skills in the UK. Children and young adults are largely unaware of Cyber Security as a Profession or the Learning Pathways they can follow to get into it. Only 15% of students in England study Computer Science at GCSE level, 85% of which are boys. How do we encourage more students, especially girls, to enter the industry with a wide range of skills, and from a diverse talent pool? The NCSC has focused on finding ways to inspire students to consider Cyber Security careers. This takes many forms, such as free residential courses, showcase days, online gamified environments and our Degree Apprenticeship Scheme or Bursary Scheme. This talk focuses on NCSC initiatives which enable KS3/KS4 and beyond to realise opportunities available to them, and explains how any teacher can help identify and support talented young people through their education and into Cyber Security careers.
