Applications are now open for the Women In Cyber Academy, commencing April 2020 in Central Bristol.

TechTalent Academy’s ‘Women In Cyber Academy’ has now officially partnered with Immersive Labs. The partnership has been set up with the intention to support more women into the sector.

Janice Rae, Founder of TechTalent Academy said: “We are incredibly grateful to Immersive Labs for their ongoing support and commitment to supporting diversity. The sector as a whole is struggling to fill the number of open roles whilst trying to become an employer of diverse talent. We believe passionately in the power of diversity to improve organisations and individual lives. So we’re creating a new talent pipeline that helps businesses build diverse tech teams – and individuals with diverse backgrounds build rewarding careers in Cyber Security”.

Women In Cyber Academy now invites applications for the April intake of their full-time Academy and also their part-time Academy which has an intake each month. The part-time academy can be undertaken alongside a full-time job. The Academy programme prepares talent for their first role within Cyber, it’s a unique offer for motivated women and non-binary folks wanting to embark on a career in Cyber, to develop relevant tech skills as well as fast track their career. We crafted the course content based on real-world skill requirements, considering skill-gaps, to ensure that our students’ skills set them up for a long-term career in cyber, ready to go straight into employment.

Applications are now open; full-time training starts in April 2020 in Bristol or part-time course spaces are available in February, March and April remotely. Full details are available on

“We are delighted to be partnering with TechTalent Academy for their Women in Cyber Academies. We have always believed that a diverse workforce is a more effective defence. It is also vital in combating the skills gap in the industry that we provide the framework for more groups to learn the skills and enter the industry. To do that, skills development programmes have to be designed to be accessible and inclusive, which is where our platform-based approach is so powerful.  By being able to learn alongside their jobs in the part-time academies this provides the flexibility to learn new skills, removing potential barriers to this market.” said James Hadley, CEO of Immersive Labs.
