Digital Skills Partnership training for HNC Cyber Security

Digital Skills Partnership (DSP) is an initiative from Scotland IS to provide CPD to college and university lecturers. A number of events have been arranged to help college lecturers deliver the new HNC Cyber Security. Each event will cover:

  • an introduction to cyber security
  • how cyber security is applied in a real world setting
  • demonstrations of aspects of cyber security that can be recreated with students in class
  • discussions on the HNC in Cyber Security which focus on sharing existing learning and expertise in this area and considering how this can be delivered
  • an update on developments relating to HND Cyber Security.

These events will have input from academia and industry, so they will have a different feel to the events that ran in the last academic year. Details of the events are below:

  • Wednesday, 14 November – from 10:30 – 17:00 at Edinburgh College (Sighthill campus)
  • Wednesday, 21 November – from 10:30 – 17:00 at Glasgow Clyde College (Cardonald campus)
