CyberFirst Futures

CyberFirst helps young people discover the dynamic industry of cyber security, what a job in cyber can lead to, and will help explore their passion for technology.


CyberFirst Trailblazers

This is a free course created for Year 8 students. CyberFirst Trailblazers will introduce students to the different opportunities that having a knowledge of how technology is used in the workplace can bring.

This course will showcase how Computer Science can play a key role in future career prospects and will be of particular benefit to those starting to consider the options available to them for their GCSE’s.

What the students will do:

Go Create: Students will learn the basics of how to customise a website and generate enthusiasm about being able to contribute to digital infrastructure.

Digital Detective: Students will use digital forensics to identify the first person who has contracted a disease and learn how open-source intelligence can lead to finding out more information about people.


CyberFirst Adventurers

This course is a follow on from CyberFirst Trailblazers and is designed for Year 9 students, who are choosing which subjects to study at GCSE.

What the students will do:

The Data Games: Students will gain an understanding of Big Data by using it to create the perfect team using a set of sports results. They will then compare with other students to learn about how data can be interpreted.

Crack the Code: Students will work in teams, against the clock to unlock various devices, which will help them gain an understanding of cryptography and language analysis as well as allowing them to become familiar with cyber security terms.

Engineering: Students will learn how 3D printers have started to revolutionise the manufacturing industry and look at how engineering and technology work together. Students will then have the chance to create their own model using 3D design software.
