The pilot is now closed for applications. Please keep an eye out for further announcements on the Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund (CSIIF).
About the fund
The Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund pilot aims to increase the diversity and numbers of those working in the UK’s booming cyber security sector. The Fund will incentivise a range of organisations develop, scale up, or refocus cyber security training initiatives. Through it Government is seeking to increase the volume and diversity of adults entering the cyber security workforce in the UK. This supports the National Cyber Security Strategy aim of developing a sustainable supply of home grown cyber security talent in the UK.
The fund is open to organisations, such as training providers and charities, who can demonstrate their initiatives benefit a range of employers. The full eligibility criteria is set out in the guidance notes on this page.
This is a pilot initiative to prove the concept with a view to expanding if successful. We would therefore welcome feedback from prospective applicants on any aspect of the design of the fund.
