Esther Pearson, Graduate Engineer at Airbus
“I’m really excited to see Cyber Innovation Hub offering short, bitesize cyber upskilling as cyber is such an exciting and fast-paced area to work in. During my programme at Cardiff I was immersed in learning through a hands-on, practical approach which allowed me to learn much more quickly.
After my studies, I felt confident and found it easy to recall the material as I had actually experienced it through doing, rather than reading. This has carried into my new role at Airbus as an engineer on their graduate program, where I am able to actively participate in development and planning activities.”
Joe Hamer, Teacher of Digital Technology & Computer Science
“Over these sessions I have been able to develop my understanding on a variety of cyber based topics. I have been able to get hands on experience with coding, using a variety of different software packages. This has allowed me to take new skills into the classroom to support my pupils learning and better enrich their lessons.
I have particularly enjoyed the hands-on activities in these sessions, and I am eager to bring these into my Computer Science lessons. I would recommend these sessions as a way to enrich and develop your curriculum, especially the topics that are a bit of a drag. Also as a tool to explore sides of cyber you wouldn’t normally get the chance to!”
