Military veterans are an untapped skills resource and they should be supported to transition into the civilian workforce so that they can succeed.
We have already supported 150 veterans to gain certification in two of IBM’s cyber security tools. The programme has demonstrated that, with the right training, coaching and support, service leavers with a generalist background can successfully transition into well-paid jobs in the commercial cyber security sector.
We plan to expand this programme across the South West and test the model with other groups of people facing significant changes, for example ex-offenders and women returning to work. Further delivery options are also being designed.
You can find out more about the programme in this blog post.
