Neueda and Novosco Cyber Security Academy applications close tomorrow

  • Applications are due tomorrow for the Neueda and Novosco's Cyber Security Academy, a 9 week course that guarantees an interview for a cyber-security job.

    If you've ever wanted a job in the cyber-security field but your current qualifications don't quite match up with what job postings are asking for, the Cyber Security Academy by Neueda and Novosco could be just what you're looking for. The two companies have partnered with Belfast Metropolitan College to deliver the training academy, with the deadline for applications closing tomorrow at noon.

    The course will run for 9 weeks at the Belfast Met Springvale Campus and is aimed at people who want to retrain or upskill into cyber-security from other fields. The academy will train applicants in testing customer's systems, identifying security issues, and assess security strength and potential areas of threat or risk.

    Those who complete the course will earn an industry-recognised qualification in cyber-security and will automatically get an interview for an entry-level cyber-security role at both Novosco and Neueda. The positions have a starting salary of £18-22k depending on experience.

    Applicants for the programme must be over 18 and eligible to work in the UK, and must have a Foundation Degree or equivalent level 5 qualification in any discipline. As the scheme is part of the Assured Skills programme by the Department of Economy, participants will be given a £150 training allowance per week, travel expenses, and potential assistance with childcare if needed.

    Applications close tomorrow (26th April 2019) at 12 noon. To apply, head over to https://consultations.nidirect.gov.uk/dfe-employer-skills-branch/e54c6d6c/consultation/intro/
