Value to Industry
Industry needs to raise the profile of cyber careers
Education is a cottage industry that is not easily accessible at a strategic level to deliver important messaging
HR benefits – creating a fast track recruitment strategy by building relationships and world class technical skills to identify recruits from a captive talent pool
Work directly with an experienced team to implement and manage an effective skills strategy, gaining direct access to technical students
CSR: demonstrating your commitment to social mobility in society by working with in-need cohorts (neurodiversity, socially disadvantaged)
Employer brand: enhance your profile to attract top talent, by providing your staff with rewarding CPD, supporting young people in their learning journey

What Our Partners are Saying
"Cyber Security underpins every business in operation today and is critical to national security. Fujitsu has been a supporter of UTCs and have recruited some great talent across our business. When we were asked to support the UTC Cyber Group we felt this would be the perfect opportunity to work with the national UTC network to address the cyber skills shortage.
We are proud to support and work with a team with a compelling vision, that are currently supporting in excess of 2000 students and scope for many more."
"Cyber security is a sector where you can genuinely have a positive impact on fundamental areas of our daily lives … and yet we’ve got a severe shortage of skilled people to help."
