Cyber Skills Aotearoa

08 November 2022

At a special launch event hosted by Naenae College, Grok Academy and CORE Education introduced Cyber Skills Aotearoa, a programme to develop cyber security skills and dispositions in ākonga in Years 6-13.

Read about the launch event - Students urged to be like 'Roadrunner' and avoid cyber 'coyotes'.

The programme provides free resources and support to teachers. Cyber Skills Aotearoa opens with CyberComp - an online competition that takes around 45 minutes. CyberComp will be open between 27 October and 11 November 2022.

Cybersecurity posters and other offline activities are also available to help students learn about information security. In 2023 free online courses will be released that will delve into cybersecurity topics in more detail. The resources are available in both English and Māori Medium.

Teachers can register their students for CyberComp now and can also request sets of professionally printed cyber cards - a useful classroom resource to engage students in rich discussions about online privacy and security.
