The Bridewell Academy starts with a three-month training and induction program. Following this, you'll enter a six-month period primarily focused on shadowing and gaining exposure to clients. During this time, a dedicated line manager will support you, assisting with networking, relationship-building, and increasing your visibility within the business. 

By the 6 to 18-month mark, your training will have taken root, allowing you to work full-time on client-based projects. You will have accumulated enough experience to confidently pursue relevant courses.  Alongside working with Bridewell, you’ll be able to expand your knowledge with access to SANS training courses and other industry recognised training and qualifications such as CREST and ISO27001. 


Individuals who complete the Academy are then able to move into entry level roles at Bridewell in areas of Cyber Defence or Cyber Consulting.   When you are not undertaking training, you will be immersed within one of the following areas:

  • Cyber Risk Management 
  • Cyber Security Standards and Frameworks 
  • Security Operations 
  • Managed Detection and Response  
  • Vulnerability Management 
  • Cyber Threat Intelligence 
  • Digital Forensics and Incident Response


Each Academy candidate will be assigned a line manager/ buddy within the team they have been assigned. The Line Manager will provide support and mentoring for you during your academy journey.  ​
