The Cyber Security Graduate Apprenticeship is aimed at employment in the following areas: Information security audit, compliance and governance, cyber security testing, architecture, threat management or risk analysis and management and in a security operations centre.
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 three stages, featuring a combination of tutor-supported study modules and professional practice modules (work-based learning).
This is a work-based higher education programme designed to develop the apprentice’s learning and experience, to equip apprentices with the higher-level understanding, skills and behavioural characteristics needed to underpin a successful career as a senior cyber security professional.
The academic components of the programme enable the apprentice to develop solid knowledge and skills in the areas of information security management, digital forensics and a choice of either network security, data management or software engineering.
In addition, work-based learning supports the application of new knowledge and skills in the workplace so the apprentice gains quality, practical experience of designing and/or evaluating technologies, processes and controls to protect systems, networks and data from unauthorised access.
