Learner Stories

Role before CAPSLOCK:
Freelance Composer

“This time last year I was a home-schooling homemaker and struggling to access remedial IT courses. Now, I work with innovative training providers and create my own training & awareness content, and I support both defensive security and governance teams with their projects. I get to tell people I am a cyber security consultant for a global law firm, which makes me super proud.”

Rebecca M.
Security Awareness Specialist
Role before CAPSLOCK:
British Army HR

"I was drawn to CAPSLOCK because they are trying to break down barriers to cyber security that may be present due to a lack of a university degree. They are offering people a chance to showcase life skills and experience instead. All of the CAPSLOCK tutors have been fantastic and you can see how invested they are into bringing new talent into the industry. It's rubbed off on me for sure! This isn't about just getting a job when I leave the Army, it's about starting a new career."

Thomas W.
Information Security Analyst
Role before CAPSLOCK:
Chef

"16 weeks ago I took a chance. A chance to catch up with myself after years of self-doubt and resignation. After years of telling myself that I wouldn't be able to break out of my position in hospitality. Everything has changed since I joined CAPSLOCK. The enthusiasm and support we've been shown for our development. The resources and guidance that have broken down the barriers for many of us... all of that has been phenomenal. Genuinely life-changing.”

Ben C.
Penetration Tester
Role before CAPSLOCK:
NHS Midwife

"After 11 years working for the NHS, I am happy to share I have been offered a new position as a Cyber Security and Compliance Analyst. 6 short months ago I decided to make the leap with CAPSLOCK to re-skill in cyber and I have not regretted a minute of it. CAPSLOCK stood out from the start: they understand cyber security is all about people, and that the industry needs all kinds. This diversity of thought runs through the program like a stick of rock.”

Jo Y.
Cyber Security and Compliance Analyst
Role before CAPSLOCK:
Professional Dancer

"A year to the day since I finished my last contract as a professional dancer, I received and signed my first professional contract in cyber security. I couldn’t have done it without the incredible team at CAPSLOCK. The training and company vision is unrivalled, and I would suggest anyone looking to transition in to cyber to check them out."
