Abstract

This study aims to explore the impact that twenty-first century skills and cyber security skills have on graduates’ perceived work readiness. By surveying third-year undergraduate cyber security students, it will explore the connection between the technical skills and ‘soft skills’, and how they individually and jointly impact on how students’ perceive their work readiness. The survey was developed using previously established survey tools for twenty-first century skills, concentrating on teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving. The cyber security skills were adapted from the NIST NICE cyber security framework and organized using Bloom’s adapted taxonomy. SEM statistics was used to develop a model to identify the significant impact the skill development has on students’ perceived work readiness.
