New government schools programme, Cyber Discovery, launches today – sign up now!
As round one of CyberCenturion fades into the sunset, your teams may be looking for something to do until round two comes along.
Cyber Security Challenge UK is delighted to be part of a brand new government initiative, along with partners SANS, BT and Futurelearn. Cyber Discovery is aimed at years 10-13 across England. This programme was officially launched this morning as part of the Prime Minister’s announcement to boost the UK’s tech capabilities.

Introducing Cyber Discovery
Introducing Cyber Discovery
What is Cyber Discovery?
Cyber Discovery, HM Government’s Cyber Schools Programme, is an extracurricular learning programme for students in years 10-13 across England. Its goal is to ensure that many more people enter the cyber security profession in the coming years.
How do I get involved?

Please help by encouraging young people to take part in Cyber Discovery or by registering as a Cyber Discovery club leader. With our support, your role will be to mentor and oversee a group of students as they work through the phases of the programme.


You can direct young people to sign up here or to the Twitter or Instagram channels.


Club leaders do not need to be security professionals or even have studied computing in the past. The Cyber Discovery programme is designed so that all the material is available for students to teach themselves.


You can sign up to be a Club Leader here.


Reminder: CyberCenturion round two will take place from 8th-10th December.
Best wishes, Steph
