The UK is currently experiencing a shortage of skilled cyber security professionals and plans are afoot to teach children cyber security from a much younger age. ECPC (Early Computer Programming Club) has been doing this for the past 6 months in primary schools across South Yorkshire. The aim is to help and develop schools and the students to deliver and teach programming from a young age with resources such as Scratch (MIT), Espresso coding and Code.org. Our talk will be based on the efforts we have taken into schools carrying out talks and after-school clubs to teach programming and additionally incorporate cyber security into their learning. The aim is to ensure cyber security is an area of the UK IT industry that is equipped long term for future generations and the country as a whole for long-term enonomic growth.
