It’s safe to say that CAPSLOCK is making waves in the cyber security industry with their reskilling bootcamps: helping people from all different backgrounds retrain and launch new careers in cyber in just 16 or 26 weeks.
2022 has been a very eventful year for the retraining company. By the time December rolls around, they'll have launched 4 Full Time bootcamps, 2 Part Time bootcamps, run a successful reskilling programme with BT, been nominated for several industry awards, hosted the first ever Live Social for CAPSLOCK learners and alumni, and exhibited at several events and expos.
Since launching in 2021, CAPSLOCK have enrolled over 300 learners and helped hundreds of them land their first roles in cyber. Their graduates have been hired by a hugely diverse range of employers, including some of the UK's largest and most well-known companies such as Dyson, The BBC, ITV, and PwC.
They’ve seen a 100% increase in the number of cohorts they need to run in the second half of 2022 to keep up with demand for their reskilling bootcamps and are already receiving substantial numbers of applicants for 2023 enrolment.

They have also recently received funding from the government’s Skills for Life programme, allowing them to offer funded bootcamp places to eligible applicants, and open up their courses to an even greater array of people.
Alongside the reskilling opportunities CAPSLOCK offer to individuals, they are set to increase their B2B offerings over the coming months, too.
In March 2022, CAPSLOCK launched a first-of-its-kind reskilling programme in collaboration with BT. This pilot programme saw a group of existing BT employees successfully reskill in cyber security on one of CAPSLOCK’s bootcamps and start new cyber roles as Protectors in BT upon graduation.
On top of their existing Hire product, which allows companies to hire from CAPSLOCK’s diverse pool of cyber security graduates for free, they are launching Deploy: the opportunity to hire CAPSLOCK grads on a contract basis, and Reskill: offering organisations the opportunity to reskill their existing staff with an exclusive cohort, following the success of the pilot programme with BT.
With all these successes in hand and opportunities ahead, the future looks bright for CAPSLOCK...
