Sarah took the time to get to know Robert and to gain an understanding of what he wanted to achieve in his professional life. Robert’s desire to embark on a career in IT Cyber Security is so clear that Sarah knew she needed to help him to reach his goal.
Sarah and Robert built an open, honest, and trustworthy rapport between them and began to search for the perfect training opportunity to make Robert’s professional dreams come true. This search led them to IT Career Switch’s Cyber Security Traineeship programme, and the ideal solution to Robert’s training needs. Sarah put in a bursary request that, if approved, would enable Robert to gain the knowledge, skills, and practical experience required to set him on the right track for a fulfilling career in IT Cyber Security.
The Cyber Security Traineeship programme from IT Career Switch consists of training in all the fundamental building blocks of a career in the IT field, as well as the opportunity to be placed in IT job roles that will provide on-the-job skills development and vital practical experience. Taking things to the next level, the traineeship programme then provides further training designed to focus your skills and abilities on the speciality field of Cyber Security. Having the most sought-after IT certifications significantly increases employment opportunities, salary expectations, and job security.
Robert and Sarah were both delighted when the bursary request was approved and Robert could begin his IT training programme. Motivated to succeed, Robert devoted the necessary time and energy to his studies to ensure that he grasped the opportunity with both hands.
Robert has since completed the first portion of the traineeship programme and earned his globally-recognized CompTIA A+ certification. This achievement and his studies covering CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, MCSA Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows 10, and ITIL V3 led to him successfully gaining employment as a 1st Line Analyst for the IDE Group. Fuelled by his IT career progression, Robert is currently studying for his CompTIA CySA+ (Cyber Security Analyst) certification exam to prepare for the next step in his rewarding IT career journey.
