The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has recently recognised eight additional schools and colleges for the quality of their cyber security training.
Indeed, the NCSC’s CyberFirst Schools scheme rewards schools that successfully encourage young people to develop cyber security skills. By giving these opportunities to young people, the institution is hoping to inspire the next generation of talent and keep the UK secure online for the coming years.
The following schools and colleges have been recognised: Carmel College in Darlington, Chepstow School in Chepstow, Gower College in Swansea, Pate’s Grammar School in Cheltenham, The College in Merthyr Tydfil, Corfe Hills School in Poole and Thorp Academy in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and All Saints’ Academy in Cheltenham. This makes up a total of 39 institutions so far.
This initiative has been ongoing since 2020 and has now extended to Wales, Northern Ireland, Southwest England, and Northeast England.
