About this Apprenticeship

Cyber Security Placement Programme - No Experience Required,

Are you looking to benefit from a new career in IT and Cybersecurity? Skills shortages in the IT sector are driving the need for qualified, entry-level career seekers and career changers.

We help place graduates from this programme in top UK companies and organisations needing to employ entry-level IT and Cybersecurity staff that can hit the ground running with up-to-date skills gained from this programme.

The best part is you will not need any previous experience as fully accredited training, which includes tutor support and mentoring, provides you with the skills, practical knowledge and qualifications for you to secure a professional job and career in IT. You will also have the reassurance of a job guarantee upon completion.

Whether you are working full time, part time or are unemployed, this package has the flexibility to be completed at a pace that suits you and can be completed in a few weeks or a few months (step 1 to 4 below). Your job and career goals are completed in 4 easy steps.

Step 1 - Accredited Online Training

The first step is completing a selection of professional, accredited and industry recognised courses from CompTIA which is the global leader in IT Technician, Networking and Cybersecurity training. The training is delivered via multimedia rich video tutorials, practice labs, presentations and quizzes through a portal that you study from home. You will also be assigned an expert tutor and a support mentor to help you throughout your training.

Step 2 - Practical Training

You will gain practical experience by using practice labs which enable you to practice and master what you have learned. Gaining practical hands-on experience gives you confidence to be proficient in your first IT role. This combination of theoretical and practical skills is what line managers need you to have to be effective and confident in your role.

Step 3 - Official Exams

You will then go on to sit the CompTIA Security+ and the CompTIACySA+ exams to give you the official certifications which will be recognised not only in the UK, but worldwide. The CompTIA Security+ and CySA+ is the most asked for certificates for cyber security specialists.

These are the certification most professionals start their own careers with.

Step 4 - Job Placement

We work with you to secure your first role in IT. Ideally you will need to gain two years' experience in this role before you can progress into a cyber security role but for many students on completion of the training we can get them straight into entry level cyber roles.

Further we can tailor the package to include courses like the Certified Ethical Hacker and Certified Network Defender depending on your requirements and future direction.

Cybersecurity Role

Once you have completed all the mandatory training iour recruitment support team specialises in the IT and Cybersecurity space and roles at this level have an average starting salary of £35K - £45k typically being a trainee cyber security analyst or engineer role.

We have been helping career changers and new career seekers gain new careers since 2019 and we are a CompTIA Partner, and deal with accredited training partners.

Job Guarantee

Due to the success of this programme and the skills shortage of entry-level IT staff, we can guarantee you will secure a job upon completion of your study programme or we will refund you 100% of your course fees back. This is subject to our terms of learning/terms and conditions.
