CyberFirst nurturing young talent

We're developing the UK's next generation of cyber professionals through our student bursaries, courses for 11-17 year olds and competitions.

Girls Competition 2018

Following the success of last year's competition we are running it again in 2018. If you are in year 8, S2 or year 9 (NI) then find a teacher who is willing to support you and get your team together. Registration opens Jan 16th 2018.

Bursaries and Apprenticeship Scheme

CyberFirst offers students a real choice after their A Levels. A CyberFirst Bursary offers undergraduates £4,000 per year financial assistance and paid cyber security work experience. A CyberFirst Degree Apprenticeship allows undergraduates to earn whilst they learn.

Courses

All our courses are carefully designed to bring out every student's potential and inspire them to consider cyber security as a career. The courses are free and aimed at 11–17 year-olds; they are a mix of residential and non-residential and based at universities and colleges across mainland UK.

Online Girls Competition

An exciting competition to inspire and encourage young girls to consider a career in cyber. For 2018, the competition will contain teams made up of 4 female students in Year 8, S2, or year 9 (NI). Could 2018 be your year?
