MISSION

Our mission is to build a bridge for veterans and service leavers into cyber security and technology sector.

The 900,000 working aged veterans and 15,000 service leavers a year have the skills to shape the future of our digital economy and support the security and prosperity of the UK.

Only 4% of veterans are working in tech and cyber. This is 20% lower than non-veterans (for female veterans this figure is 50% lower!).

TechVets creates new opportunities for ‘tech-curious’ veterans through partnerships.

If you are still serving, leaving the military or a veteran interested in tech, then we would love you to join the TechVets community.


HOME OF THE VETERANS’ CYBER ACADEMY

The Veterans’ Cyber Academy enables veterans from any background to learn and develop REAL hands-on cyber skills and get recognised for cyber security jobs (FREE).  No prior technical background is required.

So far we have launched 3 cohorts.

  • Cohort 1 – 200 people (April 2018)
  • Cohort 2 – 500 people (July 2018)
  • Cohort 3– 1,700 people (Jan 2019)

The final cohort will be launched in July 2019 and will be uncapped and available to all veterans and service leavers.

The Academy is powered by Immersive Labs, the global leader in Cyber training.


 

 
 

Identifying, developing and measuring practical cyber security skills is the great challenge for all companies today. The Immersive Labs approach is the most exciting thing I’ve seen in this space: scalable, agile and appropriate to the way a new generation learns. It has the potential to disrupt and transform this crucial market.
