UK Cyber Security Association partners with CAPSLOCK

CAPSLOCK is a government-backed educational organisation, designed to re-skill adult learners and kick-start their cyber security careers.

The UK Cyber Security Association has announced a new partnership with CAPSLOCK as it expands its presence into the UK cyber security marketplace.

For those looking to reskill into a new career sector, cyber security is an attractive option. With a new reliance on technology in all aspects of life, this means that a huge number of new technology-focused jobs are constantly emerging. Cyber security is a growing market, and it is estimated that the cyber industry will need an additional 3.5 million qualified professionals by 2023.

CAPSLOCK is a government-backed educational organisation, designed to re-skill adult learners and kick-start their cyber security careers in as little as four months. It provides cyber re-training education, delivered live online by industry professionals, via a curriculum built around in-demand job roles and employer needs. Its model utilises Income Share Agreements, meaning there are no upfront costs for learners, who don’t pay for the course until they land a high-paying job.

With skills, education and training in cyber security being firmly on the agenda for the work that the UK Cyber Association is doing, partnering with CAPSLOCK to help individuals transition into a career in cyber security was a natural choice.

Speaking of the partnership, Lisa Ventura, CEO & Founder of the UK Cyber Security Association says: “We are delighted to partner with CAPSLOCK as one of our recommended suppliers for cyber security training courses. We will be launching a programme of joint activities in the coming months such as webinars and events to showcase the strong expertise that CAPSLOCK has in this area, and with skills, training and education in cyber security very high on the agenda for the UK Cyber Security Association, this was a very natural partnership that aligns with the core values of the UK Cyber Security Association perfectly.”

Dr. Andrea Cullen, Co-founder of CAPSLOCK, adds: “We are delighted to be partnering with the UK Cyber Security Association. It shares our beliefs and values about bringing more diversity in cyber by removing barriers, and by re-skilling more people into this dynamic industry. Our cyber security retraining bootcamps are helping people to kickstart their careers in cyber, and we are thrilled to have the support of the UK Cyber Security Association on this journey.”
