Free Cyber Security Residential Course, Warwick, 13-17th August, Year 10

The Smallpeice Trust recently launched the timetable of CyberFirst courses available across a range of UK locations.

This generation of young people have grown up with digital technology as part of their everyday life and have a natural aptitude for using digital technology; and it’s keeping that technology secure which is a key aspiration of the courses. Rather than focus solely on theory, attendees are given the chance to experience cyber security through practical learning and applied teamwork, bringing out each individual’s potential.

The course is designed for 14 to 15 year olds with a demonstrable interest in computing.

CyberFirst Defenders - 13th - 17th August - FULL BOARD RESIDENTIAL - Girls Only

Students must be 14 or 15 years old (born between 1 September 2002 and 31 August 2003) on the first day of this course.

What Career Live? is co-located with its sister show, What University Live? which will help school leavers identify and select which university they wish to apply to, and give parents the opportunity to find out more about how much it will cost, whether it's 'value for money' and the truth about student fees and debt.

Feedback from Careers Event:

Pupils were first taken to King's School where they had an introduction to UCAS courses website so that they can start researching which courses they may want to do in order to make sure they choose the correct A levels and don't close down any options for later on.

Then they listened to a presentation about how to use their time well at the show. It included advice about thinking about apprenticeships as well as University courses.

At the show the girls spent lots of time in conversation with stall holders involved in manufacturing, healthcare, the Services, technical trades and consulting as well as talking to Universities. Some of them attended a workshop on how to succeed at interviews others being coached about CV writing.

Thanks to King's School, Gloucester for kindly taking our pupils along with them to the NEC.
