The Cyber Security Graduate Apprenticeship is aimed at employment in the following areas: Intrusion analysis, network security, information security governance and information security testing.
New and existing employees of all ages, who live and work in Scotland and are looking to develop their careers in a digital profession.
The programme is delivered over four stages, with a combination of tutor-supported study modules and work-based learning modules at each stage.
This is a work-based higher education programme designed to develop the apprentice’s learning and experience, to equip them with the knowledge, skills and behavioural characteristics needed to underpin a successful career as a cyber security professional.
The initial stages of the programme enable the apprentice to acquire solid core, foundational skills and knowledge across all the pillars of IT. This is important as systems, technologies and platforms become increasingly integrated. The programme also develops valuable project and service management skills alongside the information security, network security, vulnerability management and ethics aspects.
Work-based learning supports application of new knowledge and skills in the workplace right away. This means the apprentice gains quality, practical experience of securing the network and designing, evaluating and implementing an effective information security management system.
At this stage, Graduate Apprentices will also receive guidance and support to aid their development as a Cyber Security Graduate Apprentice within their employment context.
On top of account management support, your organisation will also be allocated with the following resources:
