Despite the restrictions of COVID19, this year’s Graduates celebrated their success with Qufaro’s CyberEPQ virtual Graduation Ceremony. The Graduation event is one that Qufaro, our supervisors and teachers look forward to and one that acknowledges and celebrates the hard work and outstanding achievements of our Graduates after their CyberEPQ studies which is most deserved.

The CyberEPQ is the UK’s first and only Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) in Cyber Security, developed by a consortium of education and cyber security partners to help provide a starting point for anyone considering a career in cyber security.

The course has been modeled after the National Occupational Standards in cyber security and offers up to 28 UCAS points.

The Department for Education (DfE) has announced that pre-application for the next wave of free schools will open on 18 June with the deadline for submission as 17 September 2018.
Qufaro is very pleased with this announcement as we have spent considerable resources on preparing for this moment. However, it is apparent that the free schools programme remains challenged with only 35 schools expected to be approved by the DfE this time.

The CyberEPQ (Extended Project Qualification) is equivalent to an AS-level certificate awarded in UK schools, and is certified by City & Guilds. It counts for UCAS credits in university applications.
