MSc project: Teaching Security in the Higher Syllabus

Aim:This project aims to investigate the security currently taught in the higher syllabus (if any) and will look for the most effective way to expand on this teaching.
This will be achieved by developing a content delivery solution and security related content for the teaching of higher students in security and security testing.
Method: Using focus groups and prototyping, feedback will be gathered from both educators and school pupils in what they would like to see, and what mix of content and method of delivery would allow them to learn best.
