Cyberfirst Gold!

RBAI is proud to announce that we have been awarded the Gold CyberFirst accreditation by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of GCHQ. This prestigious award acknowledges RBAI as one of the leading cyber schools in the province, recognizing our dedication to providing high standards of cyber security education, upgrading from the Silver accreditation received in 2023.

To become an accredited center, the school underwent a rigorous application procedure. This process evaluated the school’s comprehensive endorsement of cybersecurity, the integration of cybersecurity education across all key stages, the extension and enrichment activities conducted outside of curriculum time, the level of CPD and staff training, and the overall championing of computing and cybersecurity within the school.

The award was presented at the CyberFirst NI Education Conference, where Mr. Gray, Head of Computer Science, accepted the certificate on behalf of the school. This accreditation opens valuable opportunities for RBAI students, including connections with businesses and experts in the IT community who can offer support and development courses for both staff and students.

Additionally, our students will gain priority access to the CyberFirst Education programme and its bursary scheme, further enhancing their learning and career prospects in the field of cyber security.

As the digital landscape continues to evolve, it is vital to guide the next generation towards a safer, more secure future. We must arm our students with essential cyber security knowledge and skills. To learn more, visit: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/cyberfirst/overview.
