Free Places Available on Cyberfirst Courses

The Smallpeice Trust recently launched the timetable of CyberFirst courses available across a range of UK locations. For more information about the courses and how to apply, please go to The Smallpeice Trust website.

This generation of young people have grown up with digital technology as part of their every day life and have a natural aptitude for using digital technology; and it’s keeping that technology secure which is a key aspiration of the courses. Rather than focus solely on theory, attendees are given the chance to experience cyber security through practical learning and applied teamwork, bringing out each individual’s potential.

1,150 FREE places are available on 23 five day courses, residential and non-residential, and will provide students with the opportunity to explore modern security technology whilst working with the latest cyber security tools. The courses use presentations, team exercises and hands-on experience to hone the next generation of cyber security experts, or cyberists.

There are three different courses available, depending on age group. (Please check course info for criteria when applying):-
• CyberFirst Defenders (Designed for 14 to 15 year olds with a demonstrable interest in computing)
• CyberFirst Futures (Designed for 15 to 16 year olds who are familiar with computing and programming)
