Our virtual summer school is designed to be an engaging, enjoyable experience that will enable you to develop a greater understanding of Computer Network Operations, Cyber Security and GCHQ‘s role in protecting the National Infrastructure.  

It is a great opportunity to learn through structured teaching with extensive hands-on practical and experimental learning. You will grow and further your knowledge in Network Fundamentals, Malware Analysis, Pen Testing, Web Hacking, C and Python Programming. Previous experience in all of these topics is definitely NOT essential

You’ll learn new techniques and skills in a supportive environment, developing a project of your choice with support from Subject Matter Experts. In addition to technical skills growth, we offer you soft skills and interview guidance. You will meet people who have the same interests as you, not only in the classroom but also at virtual social gatherings and evening activities.

At GCHQ, diversity and inclusion are critical to our mission. To protect the UK, we need a truly diverse workforce that reflects the society we serve. This includes diversity in every sense of the word: those with different backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, ways of thinking and those with disabilities or neurodiverse conditions. We therefore welcome and encourage applications from everyone, including those from groups that are under-represented in our workforce.

Please note this Registration of Interest is only open to those who are Female and/or from an Ethnic Minority background. Those who register their interest will be notified once the recruitment campaign is open for applications in December.
