We are on a mission

The NDCA enables neurodivergent individuals to develop practical skills required for a career in cyber security. Backed by the UK Cyber Skills Immediate Fund, Immersive Labs is working with the National Autistic Society and UK Cyber Security Forum CIC to help develop the technical capabilities of individuals who are often overlooked when it comes to employment.

NDCA sponsorship gives your organisation unrivalled access to this pool of talented and motivated individuals, unlimited job advertising and pre-qualified candidates ready to start their career in cyber.

How does it work?

Practical learning

NDCA users complete technical challenges (the labs) spun up on demand through the browser, which is available 24/7. This virtual environment enables users to get hands-on with real-life cyber scenarios.

Our platform requires users to demonstrate their resilience, resourcefulness and perseverance. These are fundamental characteristics for cyber talent, taking them from cyber novice to ninja as quickly as they dare.

We reward our users with points and badges. The gamification of our platform plays a crucial part to its success as a learning tool. Users can compete against each other and rise up the leaderboard.
