CyberFirst 2023 Social Impact Report

Delivered by IN4 Group in the North West, the CyberFirst Schools & Colleges initiative from the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of GCHQ, aims to encourage a diverse range of young people to pursue careers in the cyber sector.

The desired outcomes for year 1 focused on establishing a solid foundation and a route towards achieving CyberFirst aims. The programme deliverables set by the NCSC included the responsibility for identifying and engaging with key local stakeholders, industry partners, schools, colleges, teachers and students; providing events; forming an industry advisory group; and assisting with the process for educational establishments to become CyberFirst recognised, so they can then be assigned an industry partner to continue to reinforce and grow the scheme for years to come.
