Building on the strengths of veterans
TechVets’ mission is to build a bridge for veterans and service leavers into cyber security and the technology sector.
The 900,000 working-aged veterans and 15,000 service leavers a year have the skills to shape the future of our digital economy and support the security and prosperity of the UK.
Only 4% of veterans are working in tech and cyber. This is 20% lower than non-veterans (for female veterans this figure is 50% lower).
TechVets creates new opportunities for ‘tech-curious’ veterans through partnerships.
If you are still serving, leaving the military or a veteran interested in tech, then we would love you to join the TechVets community.
Home of the Veterans’ Cyber Academy
The Veterans’ Cyber Academy enables veterans from any background to learn and develop real, hands-on cyber skills and get recognised for cyber security jobs. The Academy is free of charge and no prior technical background is required.
TechVets joined RFEA in January 2020. This is limited to administrative support only. A future integration programme is planned for 2021.
