The ATHE Level 5 Diploma in Cyber Security is made up of four units with four written assignments at each level. On completion of the units, students will be given access to the assignments. The assignments are approximately 5,000-8,000 words each.
The rationale of the programme is to provide a career path for learners who wish to develop their core capabilities within the cyber security and risk management sector.
The Level 5 units and assignments of this course are equivalent to the second year of a University Degree. Our Level 5 Diploma in Cyber Security is a 120-credit course, it includes four units and written assignments at each level.
This Level 5 qualification is potentially unique because it is about ‘cyber security’ as a workplace management discipline. It is therefore a semi-technical qualification that examines technical cyber security measures as well as the management, project management and leadership skills required to organise internal and external business responses to major incidents (or the threat of such).
Learners who possess qualifications at Level 4 and/or;
Learners who have some technical and risk management work experience in a computing or security business environment and demonstrate ambition with clear career goals
Learners who possess a Level 5 qualification in another discipline and want to develop their careers in cyber security and/or risk management.
As an online learner, you’ll also need a suitable computer with internet connection, together with sufficient IT competence to make effective use of word processing, internet and email.
To complete the Level 5 Diploma in Cyber Security, it will take 10 months. Every month, the student will be required to complete one assignment.
