Deep3 are delighted to be partnering with Newent School to create their NCSC cyber school hub. This exciting initiative is designed to inspire young people and support them in the development of technical skills within cyber security.
The NCSC had driven the development of Cyber Schools Hubs to support actions that address the cyber talent gap in the technology industry as it grows. The programme focuses on creating partnerships between local schools and businesses in the industry which Deep3 actively supports.
Chris Ensor, NCSC Deputy Director for Skills and Growth recently commented on the programme saying: "The cyber threat is growing, so making sure young people have the cyber security skills to help protect us has never been more important. Supported by NCSC advice and technical expertise, each school that takes part will increase their teaching of cyber security and will promote initiatives to increase gender diversity in computer science."
Deep3 and Newent School have already identified a series of initiatives which will run throughout the duration of their partnership – providing many technical challenges to inspire pupils and will provide the source of many future blog posts!
