We would like to introduce our new Cyber Security programme for 16-19 year old students; The Hacking Lab which is free to your school.
This new programme is fully funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority and endorsed by the Regional Organised Crime Unit.
Due to the pandemic The Hacking Lab can be accessed as a pack for teachers to set as home learning. Sessions are pre-recorded and easy to follow.
The Hacking Lab supports:
- 16-19-year-old student’s coding journey
- the school’s computer science curriculum

- increasing awareness of cyber security and the opportunities it can bring.
During The Hacking Lab, the students will learn:
- Cyber Security 101 past and present
