Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, has written to schools in Beverley and Holderness to encourage them to get involved in the National Cyber Security Centre’s CyberFirst Girls’ Competition.
Created in 2016 as part of the Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy to respond to evolving digital threats to the country’s infrastructure, the NCSC runs CyberFirst; which is a series of freely available short cyber courses aimed at teaching children aged 11-17 about cybersecurity.
Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, has voiced his support for colleges across Yorkshire – including Bishop Burton College in Beverley.
This comes after having been written to by a collection of principals of colleges from across East Riding, North Yorkshire and York urging him to support the sector during the annual celebration which this year ran from 14-18 October.
This week is Arts Council England’s Artsmark Celebration Week a campaign that aims to shine a light on schools across the country who champion teaching arts and culture as part of a broad and varied curriculum.
14 schools in Beverley and Holderness are currently registered for Artsmark, four of which have been awarded either a Gold or Silver award.
As any student knows, keeping on top of thing when it comes to studies is vital if you want to do well throughout the year as well as when the exams come around.
However, with the variety of other things many students have to deal with, it can be difficult to keep up with your studies. This, in turn, can make a big negative difference to your grades and your future.
Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, has written to local schools in the constituency to remind them of the government’s statutory guidance which instructs schools to keep uniform costs as low as possible for parents.
Paying for school uniforms can come at a difficult time for parents as in the most part, it comes at the end of a summer that brings with it more spending because of additional childcare costs and going on holidays.
Students and employers from across Yorkshire are set to benefit from a significant investment in the digital infrastructure at Bishop Burton College.
The college has recently completed a £650,000 project to upgrade its ICT systems, which will provide the platform to train current and future generations of highly skilled workers and provide a valuable contribution to the agriculture sector, in particular.
