Creating the Future Generation of the IT Industry
BluescreenIT believe IT can be learnt by anyone and the skills they learn on our programmes can be used to enter an exciting career in the growing tech sector.
We have developed a number of leading IT programmes along with their vendor partners CISCO, CompTIA and BCS. This allowed us to help individuals to up-skill their knowledge and create opportunities for people to learn and gain new skills, allowing them to succeed in their professional life.
We are fully committed to supporting our local community and our social responsibilities. The academy programmes we provide allow us to take those talented individuals that would have been overlooked and give them a pathway into this ever-growing industry.

Our iSTEPS Programme focuses on the age range of 11 – 18 year olds to give young people access to experience the digital industry, immerse themselves in equipment and technology and gain valuable industry experience and personal development along the way.
We have deployable classrooms, which allow us to set up anywhere across the region.
The HACKED programme focuses on supporting young people who are developing cyber skills which are of immense value in the business world in their own bedrooms, but do not understand how to transform these self-taught skills into a career.
BluescreenIT often encounter people who are being drawn into questionable activity online, because teachers, parents, case workers etc. don’t recognise the signs of hacker activity or do not understand the risks linked to what they are doing.
The Traineeship is a scheme that allows for people aged between 16 and 24 who are currently seeking employment experience and a qualification in IT.
A traineeship is an ideal opportunity for individuals to gain valuable workplace and educational skills.
The BluescreenIT (BIT) traineeship will introduce individuals to the world of Digital technology and provide transferable skills to a Digital Apprenticeship or full-time work position.
As the world changes all around us, acquiring technical skills is what brings opportunity and the promise of education is what offers hope. Who will teach and nurture these world changers of tomorrow, these global problem solvers? We will. Together with our education, instructor, training and employment partners we’ve made a commitment to developing the workforce of the future. Join us as we change the world – one student at a time.
Cisco Networking Academy partners closely with educational institutions and instructors to develop and deliver a curriculum that gives students the digital, problem-solving, and entrepreneurial skills they need to get a job, earn a promotion, or start a business of their own.
Our students do more than gain technical mastery, they come away prepared to drive innovation and help companies meet the challenges of digital transformation. 70% of those who complete advanced courses obtain new or better jobs, take on increased responsibility, or earn higher pay.
Cisco Networking Academy quickly grew to become a movement that is transforming entire communities, and delivering a pipeline of talent to fuel business transformation and take on global problems.
