National College of Cyber Security application update
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.
Just over a year ago, Qufaro announced its intention to help deliver the cyber workforce necessary to protect British citizens and organisations against the increasing threat of cyber-attack. The first element of this was to develop and deliver the UK’s first Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) in cyber security.
Cyber institute grants top Bletchley Qufaro graduates honorary membership
The Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) is partnering with Qufaro at Bletchley Park to give free student membership to the top graduates of the online CyberEPQ course.
Students embarking on cyber-security careers will thereby have access to the focal point for the information security profession in the UK. Qufaro and its lecturers, trainers and students will also benefit by becoming part of the IISP Academic Partnership Programme.
Over the next year QUFARO will be announcing a host of exciting courses, initiatives and programmes. To be the first to receive these updates, register your details with us today.
