Could you be a cyber security expert?

Are you a student in the UK aged 14-18? If so, you could take up a fantastic opportunity with the Government’s Cyber Discovery Programme.

Cyber Discovery will immerse you in challenges, tools and games – all designed to introduce you to the cyber security industry and provide some context to what professionals in the field work on.

Whether you know a bit about coding, have heard of Linux, or you’ve never even considered a career to do with computers, you can have a go at Cyber Discovery; no previous experience is required. The programme offers support to gradually build your knowledge and guide you through unfamiliar concepts.

Free and accessible online material means that you can get to grips with Cyber Discovery outside lessons and work through it in your own time.

The first phase of the programme is designed to identify problem-solving skills, logical thinking, and to spark enthusiasm for the subject, no matter what your interests are. So what are you waiting for? Have a go today!
