School Leaver Cyber Security (IT) VS Graduate Training Program? watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I’ve not been successful in getting an IT related apprenticeship (advanced or higher) or onto a school leaver trainee programme. And I’m wondering if my chances of getting into a competitive graduate cyber security / IT programme such as GCHQ, BAE Systems or BT will be improved by having a degree or not. The shortfall is having an extensive IT knowledge which can be attained by getting a degree. Question is will this be enough to differentiate me from other candidates who have MSc applying for same position?
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
