Came across this while helping friends who are being made redundant and are in a dilemma about what next. I believe it is open to people NOT in Cyber Security already.
Cyber Retraining Academy – An HM Government programme delivered in partnership with SANS.....
The training programme is fully funded by HM Government and the next Academy will take place in London, beginning January 23rd 2017.
In short FREE Cyber Security Training if selected after assessment.

Please share with friends etc that are at a cross road.
I hope it helps someone.
Some questions and response back from SANS added in thread.
Forgot to add ..........key part from first response ....there will be a number of scholarships available for students of the Academy. Sponsorships are available to assist students with accommodation and subsistence. Details will be released to all individuals that pass the Aptitude Assessment phase.
