The CyberHub Trust
The CyberHub Trust
The primary purpose of the CyberHub Trust is to promote education and training of cyber security, to identify ‘at-risk’ technically capable young people, encourage them to become productive members of society and to facilitate a pipeline of well-trained, qualified and experienced young people into the relatively new industry of Cyber Security. The Trust works with, and is advised, by government bodies, including the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) CyberFirst Programme.
The Trust also offers Community Outreach Programmes, whereby local schoolchildren, parents, or senior citizens are exposed to and educated about cyber security; and ‘at-risk’ individuals are identified and encouraged to learn skills which they can put to positive use in the community. Training is offered across a range of cyber security topics, form a variety of Providers, including Free and ‘Paid-for’ Training courses.
In addition, as part of the Work & Learn activity, apprentices, people wishing to re-skill, or military personnel wishing to return to productive civilian life, can receive appropriate education and on-the-job training. The Trust also provides Secure Operations Centres within FE Colleges, where students can work alongside experienced Tier-3 cyber security professionals, receiving formal training as well as experience. The SOCs operate as Cyber Centres of Excellence, not only providing shadowing and work experience opportunities, but also providing Employer Services to local businesses with Cyber Security and cyber testing services.
This is one of Career Colleges’ most recent and exciting joint ventures, where our students are able not only to gain excellent educational qualifications, but also `real-world’, on-the-job training so that they can enter the job market with training and experience – something employers are desperate to find.
