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."
Increasing awareness, aspirations, capabilities
We ensure UTC students have access to high-quality materials, learning platforms and labs, and are aware of careers in cybersecurity

What Our Teachers are Saying
"UTC Reading is proud to be at the forefront of supporting the cybersecurity industry’s efforts to recruit greater numbers of skilled school leavers, through its involvement in the UTC Cyber Group.
It is great to be able to teach our students not only the technical skills required to start in the field, but also to show them the variety of jobs in the industry and the different mindsets and outlooks that are needed in the diverse range of roles that come under cybersecurity.
The support of our partner companies and the guest speakers they offer is invaluable in achieving this."
