This included the development and implementation of a self-standing cyber skills strategy that builds on existing work to integrate cyber security into the education system.</p> <p>Since the Government published the NCSS in 2016, Government has developed and delivered a range of initiatives in order to achieve this strategic outcome. This activity includes, amongst others:</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Piloting local Cyber Schools Hubs models in Gloucestershire</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Launching and expanding CyberFirst Girls (as part of the wider range of CyberFirst challenges, courses and bursaries)</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Launching Cyber Discovery</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Piloting and expanding the Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Investing over &pound;80m to support the delivery and expand the take-up of Computer Science at GCSE and A Level</p> <p>-&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Developing policy proposals on the development of the cyber security profession and the branding of government skills initiatives</p> <p>Government recognises the need to now build on these outputs, bringing greater coherence and external understanding to the landscape of skills initiatives; setting out its vision for the development of cyber skills for the remainder of NCSS and beyond under a Cyber Security Skills Strategy.</p> <p>On Monday 22 October, techUK will be holding a workshop with the team at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) with responsibility for developing the Cyber Skills Strategy.&nbsp; The workshop will provide a forum for techUK members to feed in to the strategy and provide feedback to DCMS on their current proposals.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:talal.rajab@techuk.org">talal.rajab@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:Charlie.Wyatt@techuk.org">Charlie.Wyatt@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13979-techuk-for-turkish-tech techUK for Turkish Tech http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/13979-techuk-for-turkish-tech Tue, 25 Sep 2018 09:13:55 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Turkish tech companies are invited to a joint event on opportunities in the UK and techUK support <p>techUK is pleased to invite Turkish technology companies to a joint event, organised by techUK &amp; Iron Arrow Consulting, which will highlight the opportunities for the Turkish tech community in the UK and showcase how techUK can help them accelerate their growth.</p> <p>The bilateral trade between Turkey and the UK is worth nearly &pound;16 billion and exceeds the trade between the UK and India.&nbsp; Some very high profile and sizeable deals have been recently signed such as the UK defence industrial base support for the TFX indigenous combat aircraft programme, which is valued at over &pound;100 million in the next 10 years.&nbsp; There are over 250,000 Turkish nationals living in the UK, with a large and growing cohort engaged in tech related industries. Ongoing initiatives such as the Newton Fund for research and science and the Bilateral Programme Fund have seen the UK and Turkish academia and industry collaborate more than ever, with &pound;8.6 million now committed to these initiatives.</p> <p>The Turkish tech community in the UK has moved on from individuals making their own way in the UK under the Ankara Agreement to high profile Turkish tech firms opening UK branch operations and, in some cases, even relocating their corporate HQ&rsquo;s to the UK.&nbsp; Developers, consultants, solutions architects, dev/ops engineers from Turkey are providing much needed and highly in demand skills to the UK tech sector whilst, at the same time, UK firms are offshoring complex IT projects to Turkish firms which are extremely capable and, with the current exchange rates, highly competitively priced in the market.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p>Since March 2018, there has been substantial progress at an inter-governmental level to promote the post-Brexit trade agreement between the UK and Turkey. The UK's Department of International Trade and the Turkish Ministry of Commerce have met on several occasions to discuss how they could collaborate closer on technology sector.&nbsp;</p> <p>The opportunity now is for both the Turkish tech community and techUK to recognise this bilateral trade in technology. As the industry body for the UK, techUK membership represents the best way for the Turkish tech community to gain insight and connections into the opportunity in the UK, whilst, at the same time, for UK firms to better appreciate the latent capability and significant value that the Turkish tech community can add to their own businesses.</p> <p><strong>Agenda:</strong></p> <p><strong>14:30-14:45</strong>&nbsp;Arrivals and Registration</p> <p><strong>14:45-15:00</strong>&nbsp;Welcome Address by Julian David, CEO, techUK&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>15:00-15:15</strong>&nbsp;Welcome Address by S&uuml;leyman Be&#351;li, Senior Commercial Counsellor, Turkish Commercial Counsellor&rsquo;s Office at the Turkish Embassy</p> <p><strong>15:15-15:35&nbsp;</strong>An introduction to techUK programmes by Simon Spier, Head of International Trade, techUK</p> <p><strong>15:35-16:00&nbsp;</strong>Hear from techUK members: Panel with Beko and Vestel</p> <p><strong>16:00-16:15&nbsp;</strong>Chris Moore, Technology Specialist, UK Department for International Trade&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>16:15-16:30&nbsp;</strong>&ldquo;How to think outside the box: Insights for Turkish firms looking to grow in the UK&rdquo;, Iron Arrow Consulting</p> <p><strong>16:30- 17:30</strong>&nbsp;Networking</p> <p><strong>To register for the event, please <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><a href="https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/techuk-for-turkish-tech-tickets-50776652334">click here</a></span>.&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong></p>Contact: <a href="mailto:Simon.Spier@techUK.org">Simon.Spier@techUK.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:dominykas.broga@techuk.org">dominykas.broga@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14140-gp-it-futures-catalogue-and-capability-assessment-webinar GP IT Futures Catalogue and Capability Assessment Webinar http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14140-gp-it-futures-catalogue-and-capability-assessment-webinar Tue, 16 Oct 2018 15:22:22 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org GP IT Futures Catalogue and Capability Assessment Webinar <p>You are invited to join techUK and NHS Digital for a GPIT Futures Webinar</p> <p>This webinar will focus on capability assessment as part of the catalogue on-boarding and its relationship to the OJEU process, as a critical part of the bidding process for the GPIT Futures framework.</p> <p>You will be emailed the webinar dial in details shortly before the event.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:ellie.huckle@techuk.org">ellie.huckle@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14142-gp-it-futures-market-engagement-update-no-3 GP IT Futures Market Engagement Update No.3 http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14142-gp-it-futures-market-engagement-update-no-3 Tue, 16 Oct 2018 15:39:58 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org GP IT Futures Market Engagement Update No.3 <p>You are invited to join NHS Digital and techUK for a webinar.</p> <p>This webinar will provide a further Market Engagement Update; a round of what we&rsquo;ve introduced so far and what information is due to be released.</p> <p>You will be emailed the webinar joining instructions shortly before the event.</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:ellie.huckle@techuk.org">ellie.huckle@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14001-hss-framework-supplier-development-programme HSS Framework Supplier Development Programme http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14001-hss-framework-supplier-development-programme Thu, 27 Sep 2018 08:41:33 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Invitation only Development Programme <p><strong>Please note: there are still tickets available for this event.

Fulfilling smart objectives for the road ecosystem will not happen without adequate cyber security.</p> <p>This joint event between techUK&rsquo;s Cyber programme and the Transport work stream of the SmarterUK programme will unpack threats associated with key trends in the road environment, in particular relation to connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and smart road infrastructure.</p> <p>The agenda for the day is as follows:</p> <p><strong>0900 - 0930:</strong> Registration</p> <p><strong>0930 - 1035:&nbsp;</strong>Session One: Connected and Autonomous Vehicles</p> <p><strong>1035 - 1100:&nbsp;</strong>Coffee Break</p> <p><strong>1100 - 1230:&nbsp;</strong>Session Two: Connected road infrastructure</p> <p><strong>1230 - 1240:&nbsp;</strong>Event wrap-up and&nbsp;</p> <p>We invite you to join us for lunch and networking following the event close.&nbsp;</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:Jessica.Russell@techuk.org">Jessica.Russell@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:dan.patefield@techuk.org">dan.patefield@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14016-queue-for-the-loo-female-entrepreneurism-in-cyber Queue for the Loo: female entrepreneurism in cyber http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14016-queue-for-the-loo-female-entrepreneurism-in-cyber Fri, 28 Sep 2018 09:45:36 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Event supporting the Queue for the Loo Initiative <p style="margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; text-align:left">On Wednesday 19 September, techUK helped launch the Queue for the Loo initiative; a series of events and online resources aimed at women in the cyber security sector. The initiative, spearheaded by Sian John of Microsoft, will include quarterly networking events for female cyber professionals to network, exchange ideas and find mentors.</p> <p style="margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; text-align:left">According to a recent study, the proportion of women in the UK cyber security sector stands at just 8 per cent, one of the lowest proportions in the world, with men earning an average of 16 per cent more than women. This initiative looks to not only create a stronger network between women in cyber but also to encourage them to do more to get others to consider their options in this space</p> <p style="margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; text-align:left">The next Queue for the Loo event will take place on Wednesday 5 December, at Level39 in Canary Wharf (One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AB) and will focus on entrepreneurism in the cyber security sector. Speakers will be confirmed shortly, and the event will be followed by a networking reception where we will be pairing mentors and mentees.</p> <p style="margin-left:0px; margin-right:0px; text-align:left">If you are interested in getting more involved with the Queue for the Loo initiative, please follow us on twitter @q4theloo</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:talal.rajab@techuk.org">talal.rajab@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:Charlie.Wyatt@techuk.org">Charlie.Wyatt@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:dan.patefield@techuk.org">dan.patefield@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14172-future-gazing-where-next-for-local-government-tech-in-2019 Future Gazing: Where Next for Local Government Tech in 2019? http://www.techuk.org/events/briefing/item/14172-future-gazing-where-next-for-local-government-tech-in-2019 Thu, 18 Oct 2018 14:43:35 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org Join us to celebrate and showcase the exciting activities happening in local government <p>This event will be an opportunity to reflect on the past year in local government transformation &ndash; what have been the technologies re-defining service delivery, they key trends and looking to 2019 on what the emerging technologies are disrupting the sector, the panel will be making their predictions for 2018!</p> <p>Join us to celebrate and showcase the exciting activities happening in local government transformation that are transforming public service outcomes as well as discussing on how we accelerate this for 2019.</p> <p>*Agenda and speakers to follow*&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>You can also read the tech 2018 <a href="https://www.techuk.org/insights/meeting-notes/item/11940-2018-local-government-tech-predictions-councilofthefuture">predictions here.</a></strong></p>Contact: <a href="mailto:ellie.huckle@techuk.org">ellie.huckle@techuk.org</a>
