Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund

The Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund (CSIIF) aims to quickly increase the diversity and numbers of those working in the UK’s booming cyber security sector. This is one of a range of initiatives designed in support of the National Cyber Security Strategy aim of developing a sustainable supply of home-grown cyber security talent in the UK.

The Fund works by making grants available to a range of organisations to help develop effective and sustainable initiatives that help more adults get into the cyber security profession quickly. It also contributes towards a growing and vibrant cyber security training ecosystem.  It aims to increase the diversity and numbers of those working in the UK's booming cyber security sector and is being expanded to help a range of organisations quickly develop effective and sustainable initiatives that identify, train and place untapped talent from a range of backgrounds into cyber security roles.

The Fund is open to organisations such as training providers and charities, who can demonstrate that their initiatives are not designed to fill internal vacancies, but rather service a range of employers. The Fund is not open to individuals seeking funding for their own study or upskilling. Further details can be found here.
