We are passionate about our apprenticeship scheme.
Apprentices are at the core of our business. From day one, you will be carrying out work that has a real impact on the company’s operations. We believe that our apprenticeship scheme is the best way to bring through the next generation of Cyber Security professionals.
Since our first intake of apprentices in 2020, our programme has gone from strength to strength. So much so that we were the winners of the Best Apprenticeship/Graduate Scheme award at the 2022 CRN Sales and Marketing Awards.
“I would always take passion over natural ability, I can teach most things. If you’re interested, passionate, and really want this then we can support you through your career at SEP2”

Our View on Apprenticeships
We pride ourselves on only working with first-class training providers. Those being: GK Apprenticeships, LDN and QA. By working with these organisations, we
know our apprentices are getting the best training possible to equip them with the necessary skills to kick start their careers in the Cyber Security industry.
Apprenticeships SEP2 are currently supporting
Level 3 IT Technical Salesperson
Level 3 Digital Marketer
Level 4 Cyber Security Technologist
Level 4 Cyber Security Technologist 2021 (Cyber Security Engineer)
Level 6 Cyber Security Technical Professional (intergraded Degree)
Apprenticeships are open to everyone of any age from 16 upwards. SEP2 is extremely fortunate in having a variety of ages within the apprenticeship schemes from 17 – 40 years old.
SEP2 apprenticeships are delivered via the workplace with the flexibility of being able to do training and apprenticeship work virtually. On occasion, there may be the chance to go to a classroom for external training but this will be down to the apprentice.
Apprentices have to do off the Job training (OTJ) which equates to 20% of the working week. This means each week the apprentice will book out 1 day (this may be as a full day or two half days) and use this time to go on a course, complete apprenticeship work or work on their portfolio.
SEP2’s intention is that at the end of the apprenticeship we are able to offer the apprentice a full-time job.
No! SEP2 pay more than the apprenticeship minimum wage, with starting salary of £16,000 with incremental increases throughout depending on the specific apprenticeship length and structure.
Our apprenticeship scheme offers a level of support unmatched by other companies. In 2021 we appointed Dave Gore as Learning & Development Manager, a new role at SEP2. Part of his role includes having weekly catch-up sessions with our apprentices to offer guidance, support with their training, and to help keep them on the right track. Furthermore, we have dedicated apprentice managers for both the technical and sales team in Keiron and Tim respectively, which adds another level of hands-on support.
Our apprentices range in age from 17 to 40, we believe that if you are passionate enough, there is a place for you at SEP2. Whether you’re in the Sales Team, booking meetings with companies to discuss our services, or in the Technical Team, fixing problems for our customers, everyone is a valued member of our team and crucial to giving the best possible service to our customers.
