UK government targets 14-18 year old’s to tackle security skills gap

Students across the UK are being encouraged to consider taking part in a £20 million cyber security schools programme being rolled out across the country in an attempt to tackle a growing skills shortage.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS)’s Cyber Schools Programme will seek to train the next generation of employees by giving them the chance to learn cutting-edge cyber security skills alongside their secondary school studies.

A nationwide network of extracurricular clubs, activities, along with an online game, will be launched to support and encourage schoolchildren in their development.

SANS, BT, FutureLearn and Cyber Security Challenge UK have already been confirmed as partners and will help to deliver the four-year programme to students.

Teachers, industry members and volunteers can also register their interest now.
