What Employers say...
“With 40 years in high-tech industry I had co-founded a company that was reliant on technology to deliver online services in the cloud. We handle sensitive data related to the governance of organisations in the charity, not-for-profit and housing sectors. While we have a Managed Service Provider to manage the technical infrastructure we have the contractual obligation to our clients for data protection and cyber security. These are essential skills we decided to bring in-house and the UK Government’s cyber security apprenticeship scheme provided the way to do that. ”

What Apprentices say...
“Over the past few years (and as an older person) I have been trying to change my career direction from financial services to tech. As you can imagine, it has been difficult to make that jump. Most companies saying you’ve got loads of experience, but you haven’t got the skills
It was Bev Mcgowan at the Specialists Hub who spotted the potential in me and my eagerness to get into tech (particularly cyber security). She aligned my experience with her huge network of contacts to enable me to change careers and join FWD View on an apprenticeship.”
