The South East Regional Organised Crime Unit’s Cyber Choices team have developed a lesson plan which aims to teach the Computer Misuse Act and highlight career opportunities in Cyber Security. This lesson plan is intended for Upper Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 but can be delivered to anyone you assess as likely to benefit from the messages. This includes other youth groups such as Scouts, Girl Guides or Coding Clubs.

* ‘Teenagers’ in this context represents a cohort of 14 year-olds followed as part of a millennial cohort study and their behaviours in the preceding year.
Cyber Choices Lesson Plan
Our Cyber Choices lesson plan has been designed to meet:
- PSHE themes H2, R28, R30, R35, L1 and L9
- UK Council for Internet Safety’s ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework
Lesson Plan Resources
Our lesson plan is intended to be delivered in 1 hour but has been built to be modular so that some elements can be adapted for the lesson length available. A summary of the lesson can be found in the ‘Information for Schools’ document and full details for delivery in the ‘Lesson Plan’ document. The Game Cards and Case Study Handouts are optional depending on which mode of delivery is chosen from the lesson plan. There are also supporting notes in the Lesson PowerPoint which may be useful in either printed form or presenter mode which give context and emphasise intent for some sections.
