Over the past two years, the National Cryptologic Foundation (NCF) has played a pivotal role in the development of High School Cybersecurity Curriculum Guidelines.
The NCF High School Cybersecurity Curriculum Guidelines (HSCCG) were created so that curriculum providers, teachers, and industry could create and deliver engaging and relevant cybersecurity curriculum that will attract high school students to study and pursue a profession in cybersecurity.
Just two short years later, the NCF has partnered with Teach Cyber to bring these guidelines to life through courseware that is available to high school educators at no cost. Launched in Fall 2020, Teach Cyber is now in use in 48 states by ~400 educators.
Teach Cyber is supporting teachers’ use of the curriculum by offering Teacher Professional Development to build teachers’ understanding of this new, emerging field and to prepare teachers to teach cybersecurity in the 2021-2022 Academic Year.
Available during the Summer 2021 are "Learn Cybersecurity" Workshops and "Teach Cybersecurity" Workshops.
