We reskill adults into cyber security professions, so you need to be over the age of 18 to enrol.
We need to have your full attention during class hours so that you can participate in the sessions. This means that you can’t be working whilst you’re in sessions.
The CAPSLOCK course is interactive with lots of discussion and Team-Based Learning, so you’ll need a suitable, quiet place to learn where you can focus and engage.
All learners need to have a working webcam and microphone or headset, and agree to be on camera at all times during class.
To fully participate with the course, you will need a working laptop or desktop computer, and a stable internet connection.
You need to be comfortable with basic computer skills to participate in the course and navigate our digital campus.
We ask that you have a desire to learn new skills, develop your existing transferable skills, and are willing to consistently participate in the course.
At CAPSLOCK, you will work closely with your peers in small groups. Understanding the importance of teamwork, and openly contributing and collaborating with your team is a key part of the course.
You must be able to attend and fully participate in at least 90% of the scheduled sessions to successfully complete the CAPSLOCK bootcamp.
You need to be able to communicate with your tutors, classmates, and mentors using spoken and written English throughout the course, so must be able to speak and understand English to a conversational level.
To complete this stage you need to complete CAPSLOCK’s application form. This is split into 4 easy sections:
In the form we’ll ask you for you some information about yourself, your preferences for joining the course, and then ask you to answer some questions about your motivations and current circumstances.
We review every application individually. Take your time with each section and make sure that your information is correct
The more information you can give us in section 4 the better. We want to get to know more about you and your motivations for joining the course. We’ve provided some prompts to give you a starting point
You’ll only need 2 things to apply:
Once you have submitted your application form, we’ll review your application carefully and be in touch with an outcome. If successful, we’ll send you a conditional offer of enrolment with details of your next steps.
As part of your conditional offer of enrolment, we’ll ask you to complete some pre-course work. This is 20-25 hours of self-guided study where you’ll watch videos, read texts and complete cyber labs and quizzes. You’ll gain access to the pre-course content after you’ve received a conditional offer of enrolment.
The pre-course work is nothing like the actual course itself. It is very independent and self-driven, whereas on the course there is a much more collaborative approach with lots of support throughout.
We’ll invite you to arrange your tuition once you have completed the pre-course work, and after our tuition open date (which is usually around 8 weeks before the course starts).
Arranging your tuition essentially means applying for your Skills Bootcamps funding. We’ll send you full details on how to do this at the time.
We’ll invite you to enrol once you have arranged your tuition, and after our enrolment open date (which is usually around 1 week before the course starts).
There are three steps to enrolling onto the course:
We’ll give you full details on how to enrol when you reach this stage.
