Operating across the UK

We operate in Colleges and Institutes of Technology (IoTs). Each has specific specialisms and the CyberHubs are located in those with a focus on DigiTech & Cyber.

The first CyberHub opened in Barking & Dagenham, London, in 2020, followed by Hugh Baird College in Liverpool, and the Birmingham Metropolitan College.

These were followed by Coleg Gwent in Cross Keys, Wales and City College Plymouth.

In addition, we have a relationship with the Activate Learning Group, with facilities in Oxford, Reading, Guildford, Banbury and others.

Several new CyberHubs are in discussion with colleges in Edinburgh, Manchester, and Teeside, among others.

If your college is interested in developing a CyberHub, please contact Julia von Klonowski
