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?
