Those schools/colleges that meet all the judging criteria are awarded Gold status – for delivering excellence in cybersecurity education, Silver schools are certified for offering good standards and meeting most of the criteria and Bronze for schools aiming towards high standards.

Successful schools receive a range of benefits, including official recognition from the NCSC and opportunities to collaborate on cyber-related activities with more than 130 CyberFirst partner organisations from industries as varied as banking, telecoms and transport.
