Progression paths you may want to consider following this course

Cyber Security Course

The opportunities we now have access to are immense, but so are the shortcomings. Cyber security is the application of technologies, processes, and controls to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from cyber attacks.

Cloud DevOps Course

A Cloud DevOps Engineer performs development operations. They use Cloud to deliver pipelines, deploy services, perform development testing, and monitor and manage incidents. These professionals speed the delivery process and guarantee that the service is more reliable.

Ethical Hacker Course

Some say the best form of defence is attack. That's certainly a practice of the skilled Cyber Security sector. Ethical Hacking involves an authorised attempt to gain unauthorised access to a computer system, application, or data. This helps to find vulnerabilities.

This Academy built my career confidence from zero. Working in IT has always been my dream, and I feel privileged to have taken part in a programme that helped me realise it. I’m extremely grateful for the support throughout and I couldn’t be more excited.”

I’ve always had an interest in IT, but I had no qualifications to back it up. This model has changed my life. It's enabled me to do what I've always wanted!”

This opportunity was a unicorn. You just don’t find them. I’d been looking for such a long time. We’re learned more on this course, in this environment, in the past 8 weeks than I had in a year trying to do this on my own. It definitely works.”
