Our Skills Development Programme is designed to give top talent from local universities the chance to gain on-the-job experience working within the cyber security sector.
These services are an essential part of our offering at EMCRC, as SMEs often either;
don't have the budget to go to a consultancy when they’re considering their cyber security needs
or are unsure about beginning their cyber security journey and would like to learn from a trusted independent source before investing further in private sector solutions.
Our students train to offer guidance to SMEs who are new to cyber security and need help getting started, putting into practice the knowledge they’ve gained at university and learning new skills in the process through mentoring and training masterclasses – an extremely valuable asset to the local community.
This immersive experience gives students the chance to grow their knowledge and skillset, with benefits including:
The chance to work on the forefront of cybersecurity research, including involvement in large-scale projects
Becoming business-savvy and working with a flexible approach
Keeping up to date with the latest techniques being used in the industry
Leaving the programme workplace ready, with enhanced technical skills, client skills and soft skills.
The programme is perfect for students with a keen interest in the area who want to help local SMEs become more cyber secure. Our students leave with not only a fantastic degree, but highly sought-after experience working with law enforcement agencies and private sector clients, and many go on to gain employment with big global companies in some of the best graduate positions in the UK.
