Cyber Security

Loading the player ...

If you're about to, or already have, finished your A Levels you can join BT Security on our apprenticeship programme.

Our full degree apprenticeship activates UK school leavers to thwart cyber crime, decrypt data and untangle malware. The programme develops a blend of technical skills across digital security, information assurance and risk, to help apprentices onto a fantastic career path into Cyber Security.

What you'll be doing

During your apprenticeship, you'll be doing a real job. Typically this will be in either our Security Operations Centre, within our security implementation teams, or with our security architects. We also have apprenticeship positions working in some of our more specialised security departments.

You'll have to attend university\place of study – typically four days out of each month, or more depending on your apprenticeship. You will be expected to complete your degree work in between times.

We'll give you plenty of opportunity to take part in group projects, team building, social activities and training courses that complement your college work.

A BT apprenticeship is an excellent alternative to university, and you'll have a guaranteed job at the end.

Entry requirements

To be considered for the Cyber Security apprenticeship programme you will need to achieve (or have achieved) 3 A-Levels with a minimum of BBC grades, which must include a STEM subject at a minimum grade B. In addition you will need to have a minimum of 4 GCSE's at grade 4-9 (C or above) including English Language and Maths.

Equivalent qualifications are accepted.
