Teaching this Subject
The West Midlands Regional Cyber Crime Unit’s Cyber Choices team are supporting the lesson plans developed by the NCA which aims to teach the Computer Misuse Act and highlight career opportunities in Cyber Security. This lesson plan is intended for Key Stage 3 – Years 7 and 8 – but can be delivered to anyone you assess as likely to benefit from the messages.
Help them understand the consequences of breaking the law
The NCA and Police take cybercrime very seriously. We work with national and international partners to investigate cyber criminals. If you get involved you could face the following consequences:
– A Visit and warning from Police or NCA Officers
– Being arrested
– Having your computer seized and internet access restricted
– Pay a penalty or fine
– A significant prison sentence
A permanent criminal record could affect education and future career prospects, as well as overseas travel.Cybercrime is not a victimless crime, imagine how you would feel if someone illegally accessed your private and personal information, could control your computer, or stop you using the internet.

Visits to Schools, Colleges or Universities
Unfortunately there are not enough members of the team to visit every school, college or university in the South-East region and as such we must decline visits to individual educational institutions. The exception to this is if we become involved because of concerns you have about specific pupils.
