A new initiative creating a national centrepiece for cyber education and innovation in the UK
The Internet has revolutionised our world and opened new opportunities for the global economy and civilisation at large. But our reliance on this complex infrastructure has also exposed new vulnerabilities. This has led to a burgeoning demand for cyber security talent that can’t currently be met.
Qufaro is committed to helping employers and students to fill this gap by developing new standards and providing access to a range of cyber security educational courses, Level 3 & 4 Apprenticeships and qualifications to fill the significant skills gap.
For the first time in 2020, the Matrix Challenge went not only regional but national too with over 65,000 young minds from all over the UK up against one another’s cyber skills. The Matrix Challenge is a free cyber competition for 11-17 years olds developed by Yorkshire & Humber Regional Crime Unit.
The Qufaro CyberEPQ aligns well with the BSc (Hons) Cyber Security programme at Plymouth and would provide a solid base for future study in this field at university. I would endorse the CyberEPQ as a means of demonstrating a clear commitment and interest in studying cyber security.

By completing Bletchley Park Qufaro’s CyberEPQ, students gain an advantage over their peers in cyber knowledge as the level 3 qualification covers the cyber fundamentals aligned with NOS, CIISec and the CyBOK and skills framework. A great entry point for those considering a Cyber Security degree.
Dr Konstantinos Mersinas Director of Distance Learning, Information Security Group, Royal Holloway University of London
We are seeing more and more global organisations being hit by successful cyber-attacks. It would great for more students to get involved and learn more about the field earlier and the CyberEPQ is a great way to do that.
