Business volunteers from KPMG ran an interactive cyber security workshop with Year 8 students at Leeds City Academy last month, helping them to understand the benefits and dangers of using social media and other tools online.

The volunteers showed over 70 students the risks of sharing content online and how social media can help them build their personal brand for future employment. The Big Four auditor has also taken part this term in interview practice at Leeds City Academy and Wetherby School.

100% of the students that took part in the cyber security workshop said they had improved their understanding of the safe use of the internet and that the activity had helped them focus more clearly on their future.

Peter King, Project Coordinator at Ahead Partnership, said: "We've had brilliant feedback from the students about this workshop as it's made them think in a new way about something they use every day. The students left feeling much more confident about how to represent themselves online and they were interested to hear about the impact digital is having at KPMG."
