BCS Webinar

Ever wondered what it would be like to create apps or defend companies from cyber-attacks? Are you interested in what it's like to do an apprenticeship, or to go to university?

BCS are arranging live video link-ups with people working in, and learning about, different areas of technology. You'll get a chance to hear from them about what they do in their job, the most exciting parts of what they do, as well as how they got into it and tips for following in their footsteps. This is a rare chance to find out about different future paths that are available in tech from the people who are directly involved. You'll also be able to put forward questions for them to answer.

In a recent webinar session Josh Callicott, a cyber-security apprentice from BT talks about what it's like to do an apprenticeship, what it's like to work in cyber-security and any tips for people who are interested in this path.
