Delivered by accredited Providers

Training (both free & paid-for) is provided by accredited DigiTech and Cyber experts, both at FE Colleges/IoTs in our CyberHubs, as well as virtually. We also work with Service Providers, government, law enforcement and others to design and deliver innovative new DigiTech/Cyber training courses.


In-Work Training Programme

BIT Group training session

In 2022, we worked with the BIT Group to design and deliver a Cyber Analyst course, as part of a DfE-funded ‘upskilling’ pilot specifically targeted at IoTs. The In-Work Cyber Security Training Programme (IWTP) was based at the Barking & Dagenham College and almost 40 individuals who were ‘in employment’ were able to upskill and achieve an NCSC accredited Cyber qualification.

Four individuals on the course were able to secure promotions and/or new roles — even before the training course had been completed!


RCCU 'At-Risk' Training Programme

In 2023, we again worked with the BIT Group to conceive, design and deliver a basic IT & Cyber course, as part of a Home Office-funded pilot targeted at ‘at risk’ individuals in the Offender Management Programme, helping them to develop new and fulfilling careers. Based in the West Midlands, the WM-RCCU worked with us to deliver the training, both virtually and at the Birmingham Metropolitan College CyberHub.

This pilot is under review to secure further investment for similar programmes around the country.
