CISCO aims to improve employability and reduce the digital skills gap in all EU member states by providing learning courses for educational institutions, teachers, students and employers. CISCO commits to expanding the CISCO Networking Academy programme in the EU to enable new educational institutions, teachers and students to have access and benefit from the courses. MoWs have been closed with many Minstries of Education on national and state level. Extended teacher training activities have been conducted with the appointed teacher training institutions in the EU member states.

New courses will be added covering topics that are trending in the IT industry: Cybersecurity, IoT Security, IT system automation. The vast majority of the courses were revised or updated during the period of this pledge.

The Networking Academy has gone from strength to strength throughout the years, having reached over 3,000 partner institutions and more than 600,000 participants to their courses in the school year 2020-2021.
