Take the First Step in Your Cyber Security Career by Joining the Bridewell Academy
Running over 18 months, the course provides you with the education and experience to become a qualified cyber professional and join the Bridewell team.
By joining the Academy, you’ll gain valuable hands-on experience working alongside Bridewell consultants, and interactive one-to-one and group training sessions. You’ll also go through structured learning courses provided by Firebrand and SANS.
We offer a formalised, structured programme that combines industry leading experience and working within the one of the fastest growing cyber security companies in the world.
Over the course of the 18 months, you’ll receive training across different cyber security disciplines, undertake projects and support client facing work. The Bridewell Academy is delivered both in groups and via one-to-one sessions, providing an interactive environment which allows you to gain knowledge and experience.
The Bridewell Academy begins with 3 – 6 months of training and inductions before you move on to 12 months of role-based delivery training where you will gain first-hand experience working as an analyst or consultant. Those 12 months offer you the opportunity to rotate between different areas of the business to gain valuable experience. Alongside working with Bridewell, you’ll be able to expand your knowledge with access to SANS training courses.
Individuals who graduate from the Academy are then able to move into entry 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.
