There is an acute and growing need for cybersecurity professionals in Canada. High school is a critical juncture in young people’s education journey when they explore career options, and yet topics of cybersecurity and active digital citizenship are missing from high school curriculums.
STEM Fellowship is a registered non-profit organization that uses peer-mentorship and experiential learning to empower data-native generation critical thinking and science communication with open data. We work towards the diversity in STEM fostering digital workforce proficiencies and strong digital citizen’s position among university and high school students.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Cisco Networking Academy, we are launching the Cybersecurity Classroom Training Program (CCTP). The goal of the program is to introduce cybersecurity education into classrooms across Canada in a variety of courses and contexts making students’ digital lives safer. CCTP will also address the critical skills shortage by increasing enrolment into post-secondary as well as certification programs in the cybersecurity field. Our program is brought to you by:
