The Tech Partnership

The need to be cyber secure has never been greater and it is vital that teachers and learners have the skills they need to stay cyber safe and tackle and cyber threats they are presented with.

Cyber Security Skills

With cyber crime on the rise, ensuring the UK has the cyber security workforce it needs is now as vital as ever to keep business and citizens safe. But despite this increasing demand the number of young people entering the sector remains low. That's why the Tech Partnership is committed to inspiring young people about cyber security and developing their skills through its TechFuture and Tech Industry Gold programmes.
