We know there’s a gap between the number of people working in Cyber and the growing resources needed to protect us from cyber-attacks… We know it’s critical to involve female voices in developing technology and security... We’re here to move the dial…

Working in collaboration with Women Tech Jobs, industry-leading training provider QA is launching a programme to train women for cyber security roles.

The training is 50% funded by the Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) through their Cyber Security Immediate Impact Fund (CSIIF). The other 50% is funded by industry sponsors, who will help shape the training to meet their required skill sets, helping you to launch your new career in Cyber at the end of the program.

So if you’re:

  • a flexible thinker
  • eager to learn
  • tech curious

this free-to-attend 12-week training programme will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed.

The training will run 9am-5pm every week day, blending classroom training with e-learning (2 days onsite and 3 days remotely). Your learning is fully funded by DCMS and industry sponsors, preparing you for a career in Cyber. We’re looking to run two cohorts of 15, one starting late April 2019 and one in May 2019.

At the beginning and end of the course we'll introduce you to the companies looking to hire. Our goal is to have a 100% placement rate among candidates seeking employment, and we have a very successful track record of placing candidates in roles.

Please note: Our aim is to help place everyone that wishes to work in Cyber, but we cannot guarantee you a job on graduation, since your success will be down to your hard work. We'll support you every step of the way, but your success will ultimately be down to you.

To apply, please email your CV with a covering letter.
