New Cyber Security Courses and Apprenticeships Launched

Budding cyber experts can help beat the hackers thanks to a series of exciting new courses being launched at City of Wolverhampton College this September.

The Level 2 Diploma in Digital Technology (Networking and Cyber Security) and Level 3 in Cyber Security (Hacking the Hackers) are aimed at all those hoping to pursue a career in digital technology.

Students will work closely with employers to gain an understanding of their security measures, learn how to create and maintain networks and find out how to identify a range of threats and vulnerabilities.

Two Level 4 apprenticeships are also on offer: In the two year Cyber Intrusion Analyst apprenticeship students will work with employers and recognise when a security breach has occurred and identify the range of threats and vulnerabilities. 

Meanwhile in the Cyber Security Technologies apprenticeship students will gain the ability to implement security controls to reduce the risk of a cyber-attack.

Head of faculty Sharon Lane said: “With the growing challenge of cyber threats, cyber security is a massively expanding field with plenty of opportunities for young people with the right qualifications.

“It is a fascinating career choice and these courses aim to give students all they need for a career in ‘out thinking and outpacing’ the hackers.

“Alongside these courses we are also launching a new apprenticeship in cyber security and are in talks with businesses about how we can help them upskill their workforce to deal with new online threats.”
