CAPSLOCK is a revolutionary educational organisation that re-skills adults into cyber professionals within 6 months. We provide cyber re-training education, delivered live online by industry professionals, via a curriculum built around in-demand job roles and employer needs. Our model utilises Income Share Agreements, meaning there are no upfront costs for learners. Instead, they simply pay back a percentage of their future salary, so they don’t pay for the course until they land a high-paying job.
