The UK Government has launched the third round of funding through the Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund (CSIIF). Through the CSIIF Training providers and charities in England can apply for grants of up to £100,000 to work with employers to increase the diversity and numbers of those working in the UK’s cyber security sector.
The CSIIF already provides funding to a number of training programmes targeting groups underrepresented in the cyber security sector. A number of previously funded initiatives have developed new and inventive ways of reaching a wider range of candidates and offer flexible learning opportunities to fit different lifestyles.
This is one of a range of initiatives designed in support of the National Cyber Security Strategy aim of developing a sustainable supply of home-grown cyber security talent in the UK.
Questions about the CSIIF, should be emailed to email@example.com
The deadline for applications is the 27th September 2019.
