Cardiff Metropolitan Unversity are offering Funded digital apprenticeships in the following subjects:

  • BSc Applied Data Science
  • BSc Applied Software Engineering
  • BSc Applied Cyber Security
 
 
Who is the funding for?
The funding can be used for both new apprentices coming into the business or existing staff who are looking to upskill to achieve a degree. Some may have already studied related qualifications at a lower level such as a Level 4 apprenticeship or a HNC/HND.  Previous qualifications could be used to enter the degree at a later stage meaning their time spent studying at the University is shorter.
 
How much funding is available?
The Government will pay a contribution of up to £27,000 per employee. This is £9000 a year over 3 years which is the equivalent to the full time tuition fee for University students. This does not have to be replayed should employees not complete the course.
 
How long does the course last?
The courses each last 3 years for anyone who enters with no previous University qualifications. For those with pre-standing qualifications they may be able to enter at a later stage via the recognition of prior learning which would shorten the course duration. .
 
What are the attendance requirements?
Apprentices will be required to attend University 1 day per week during term time at our Llandaff campus, this is for a total of 24 weeks of the year only.

Cyber Advisor Scheme

Published: 26th July 2023

IASME is partnering with the NCSC to deliver the Cyber Advisor scheme. It provides small and medium sized organisations with reliable and cost effective cyber security advice and practical support.

 

In the past, organisations seeking help from an NCSC approved cyber security expert tended to be very large and complex or be from the defence, security or banking industries or part of the critical national infrastructure. If your requirements are complex, or you operate in a nationally critical sector, see the NCSC Assured Cyber Security Consultancy scheme pages.

 

Today, expedited by the pandemic, the widespread adoption of digital technology for products and services has made basic cyber security essential to every business that connects to the internet. Accessibility to this protection contributes to the national security of the UK. Consequently, the NCSC aims to extend its reach to offer a trusted source of cyber security advice to a wider range of organisations.

 

Despite a growing emphasis on cyber security, many organisations often find it hard to choose the right help to meet current guidance. The Cyber Advisor scheme aims to ensure the understanding and application of trusted cyber security advice.

Cyber Innovation Hub Challenge

Published: 13th February 2023

Challenge background

The Cyber Innovation Hub has been funded by the Welsh Government and Cardiff Capital Region with a mission to transform the Cardiff Capital Region into one of the UK’s leading cyber security clusters by 2030.  One of our objectives is to create more than 25 high-growth companies and, working closely with our industrial partners, this challenge programme is our key way of achieving that objective.  We aim to work with businesses and the public sector to pull through market-led innovation challenges – then drive rapid development of new, innovative solutions. The objective is that these will be tightly tailored to industry demand and attractive to private equity investors.

 

We’ll match-make challenge responders with entrepreneurs in the Alacrity Foundation’s incubation programme, building a team around the challenge responder, and providing them with support and services to scale quickly.  Teams will have access to internationally recognised researchers at Cardiff University.  These researchers have experience of generating and validating cyber security solutions on world-class testbeds. Teams will also have co-working space at Tramshed Tech – alongside existing cyber and digital SMEs.  The overall aim is for these teams to become new businesses at the end of the 12-month programme.

 

We are pleased to launch our very first challenge.  We are seeking innovators with potential solutions to the challenges identified below.

 

Challenge details

We are looking to identify, develop and demonstrate innovative solutions in the areas outlined below.  The challenge areas have been chosen to broadly align with challenges identified by the National Cyber Security Centre as ongoing dialogue suggests they are important to our industry partners.  We would ask you to think about the challenges and how you might solve a specific problem related to these areas.  The challenge areas are as follows:  

  • Operational technology
  • Protecting SMEs and citizens
  • Incident response for SMEs and citizens
  • Industrial IoT encryption

Call for Action

We are looking for ideas to address the cyber security challenge areas noted above.  

Challenge call launched Friday 3 March 2023
Online briefing event Thursday 23 March 2023, 1400-1500 UK-time.
Challenge call closes 12 noon (GMT) on 28 March 2023
Applicants notified 1 May 2023
Projects commence June 2023
Projects end June 2024

* Please note dates are subject to change *

 

To respond to the Call for Action, please use the form linked below.  Responders have the option of responding using the text form or uploading a five-minute video that outlines their proposal.  A set of guidance notes to help responders has been developed as is available here.

 

https://forms.office.com/e/y2pKx8X4zk

 

In any of the projects, we need ideas that can be rapidly developed and tested with the potential to be scaled and used across the UK over the coming months. 

 

Following the closing date, responses will be assessed by a panel of Cyber Innovation Hub partners to determine suitability and potential market viability.  If required, interviews with challenge responders may be arranged.

 

If successful, challenge responders will be invited to join the Cyber Innovation Hub innovation programme.  This programme, run by the Alacrity Foundation in Newport, will partner you with a team with the aim of creating a viable business with a market-ready solution.  The incubation programme is 12 months in duration and you will be expected to be located in the Cardiff region whilst you are on the programme.  To assist with costs, a stipend of £1,500 per month is offered.  The programme will guide you through ideation, product development and testing, marketing and revenue generation.

 

Throughout the programme you will have access to research expertise at Cardiff University, the incubator experience of the Alacrity Foundation and have access to the wider tech ecosystem through TramShed Tech.  Teams will be able to access physical space at TramShed Tech and the Alacrity Foundation.  The Cyber Innovation Hub is also in the process of designing and implementing cyber security testbeds in the innovative Sbarc|Spark building.  Throughout the programme you will also have support from our industry partners to ensure that market viability is at the forefront of development.
