Enhancing the UK’s cyber security skills-base

For over 60 years we’ve been improving the world through innovation by combining the physical and digital in new ways. Today, we’re also helping to develop and enhance the UK’s cyber security skills-base.

To do this, we’ve built Cyber Launchpad, scaling up our existing technical training programmes to nurture talent. The Cyber Launchpad programme ensures we can give our customers the people, tools and techniques they need to identify, prioritise and solve their problems. Our training approach also upskills their staff to provide a recruitment and development pipeline that boosts knowledge and capabilities in security engineering, software reverse engineering and security research.

What is Cyber Launchpad?

Cyber Launchpad provides opportunities for apprentices, graduates and early-career hires to develop a wide array of cyber skills. Trainees are inspired with coaching, technical challenges and real customer problems in a supportive environment through engineer-to-engineer training.

The programme provides the perfect opportunity for us to help make the UK the safest place to live and work online, strengthening the country's reputation as a leading innovator in science and engineering.
