We’re looking for the next generation of cyber security experts. Could that be you?

Are you a student in the UK aged 14-18?
Cyber security is an umbrella term covering many varied and interesting areas of expertise. It can seem daunting but Cyber Discovery is a unique programme designed to introduce you to the field, highlight the potential job roles available and the pathways to achieving them.
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 prior 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 of lessons and work through it in your own time.
