The Open University is delivering a Graduate Apprenticeship in Cyber Security to eight Capgemini employees in Inverness. The Graduate Apprenticeship has been designed so that employees who have already completed a relevant MA will be fast-tracked through.
The Graduate Apprenticeship, fully funded by Skills Development Scotland and supported by the European Social Fund, will allow the eight to work towards a BSc Hons in Cyber Security, that leads on from a Modern Apprenticeship (MA).
Suzanne McQuade, business relationships manager at The Open University, said: “We deliver Graduate Apprenticeships in Cyber Security, available at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and in Software Development. We’re proud to work with Capgemini to support the continued progression of their cyber security team through our apprenticeship provision.
“Our unique online distance learning delivery means that the team can learn at work, increasing efficiency and reducing time away from the workplace.
“Graduate Apprenticeships allow employers like Capgemini to upskill their workforce and attract and retain talent. That’s especially important in the Highlands and Islands. As the world of work rapidly evolves, Graduate Apprenticeships are hugely beneficial to employers of all types and sizes.”
