What will you learn?
We crafted the course content based on industry and real-world skill requirements, considering skill-gaps, to ensure that our graduates’ skill-sets set them up for a long-term career in tech, graduating ready to be employed.
During the Women in Cyber Academy students will earn the BCS Foundation Certificate Information Security Management Principles and the Python Institute’s Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer Certification (PCEP). On completion of the BCS certificate students will receive a free 1-year Associate Membership to BCS.
You’ll be equipped with a blend of technical and personal skills that will propel your career. More specifically, you’ll cover the following modules:
Learners will understand the fundamentals of Python, setting the grounding for programming through learning about variables, functions, arrays etc. They will create projects to advance their basic skills and progress in the course.
HTML & CSS
Here the learners build their own portfolio website which will showcase the projects they will be creating throughout the course. They learn that HTML & CSS are essential in understanding how websites are developed and how they could also be compromised by cyber criminals.
The learners look at the history of Cyber Security, the different types of attacks and the ways to prevent and protect an organisation as well as their personal networks. The practical elements involve labs where they can test their knowledge in this area.
Learners start getting deeper into programming. Looking at Object Oriented Programming, Structs and perfecting their skills. They continue to build projects in order to continue practicing.
Learners look at Linux and how it fits in with cyber security. They do hands on practical exercises to test their knowledge in the area.
Learners dive deeper into object-oriented programming with Java, learning the language as well as some interview questions and a few sorting algorithms as well as how Java fits in with cyber security.
Learners get a thorough understanding of Networks and how important they are in Cyber Security, as well as what methods they can take in order to secure any network and look out for potential threats.
The final session in the course looks at Agile where the students learn about the methodology as well as the frameworks associated with Agile. Their understanding is applied to real life scenarios within a workplace.
