Gloucestershire is set to become the cyber capital of the UK due to the development of Cyber Central in Cheltenham. There has never been a better time to break into an industry that is crying out for candidates to protect the nation from cyber-crime, or progress into the ever changing digital world using coding skills.

We are proud to launch our brand new Level 2 cyber security and coding online courses. Free to those seeking to upskill, progress or kick-start their career in the industry, our new courses will provide you with the skills you need to get to grips with the principles of cyber security and coding.
