Teachers and Professionals

Welcome to this section of our website, dedicated to all things education. If you work in a school, or with children/young people as part of your job, then you’re in the right place!

Keeping Children Safe in Education (September 2022) recognised the risk to young people of crossing the line into committing cybercrimes as a safeguarding issue. This often happens without the individual even realising, so we need to support young people in making the right #CyberChoices in their use of technology. If you have concerns about a young person and their use of technology, learn more about the referral process here.

For our list of recommended activities to support the teaching of computing and positive online behaviours, click here. This is listed by Key Stage to make searching easier – everything from Foundation to Sixth Form is covered. We have even created our own engaging and interactive lesson plan for UKS2 and KS3 to teach about the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We are working on producing lessons for other age groups.

We also have information about skills development and training and careers in cyber. There are so many opportunities out there for individuals with the right skills and an interest in computing – and they aren’t all as technical as you might think!

We are always searching for more quality resources to add to our lists, so do keep checking back periodically for updates.
