For Teachers

Teachers – You have an important role to play in supporting young people to explore their career options. 

We've created a Teacher's Toolkit to help you introduce cyber careers within the classroom. Designed to run during a normal period, these activities are fun and engaging. 

Working with Cyber experts, we've created a series of lessons that can be easily used in the classroom.

To access our lessons on how to Rob a Bank, Defend the Hospital, Crack a Million Passwords and more, click here.

These lessons have been designed in such a way that they may be used to support the teaching and delivery of learning outcomes from the following relevant curricula and qualifications.*

They will be faced with waves of cyber attacks, and only by working together will they be able to stop the attackers.
