Developing Cheltenham’s next cyber generation

Over 100 visitors attended Gloucestershire College’s business event in partnership with The University of the West of England (UWE) yesterday to hear about the future of cyber security in Cheltenham, strengthened by the new cyber degree partnership between GC and UWE.

Matthew Burgess, Principal of GC and Professor Steve West, VC at UWE opened the talks with an overview of the new cyber degrees that will be included in the offer at Cheltenham in the new dedicated cyber hub from September 2020. They will sit alongside an array of IT and cyber apprenticeships, the new T levels, HNCs and HNDs and BTECs – all aimed at attracting more students into cyber and IT related education. Attendees also heard from three guest speakers from The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – part of GCHQ; BAE Systems and Cheltenham Borough Council, with insights into the future of cyber training, opportunities in Cheltenham and developments for the cyber business park.
