What is Cisco Net Academy?
Cisco Networking Academy has been around since 1997. Donating to a local school led to the insight that the technology is not enough, people need trained. It grew massively from a single school to a community of students, educators, employers, NGOs, Cisco employees, and customers. The program offers a number of online courses shaped around technology skills in today’s working environment. With 10.9 million students across 180 countries, the credentials speak for themselves!
“I’ve always been a person who likes to adjust.
Whatever the world throws at you, it's up to you how you handle it.
You can handle it that way or you can just whine that you don't have shoes and not go to school.
There’s always a solution, as long as you open your mind to it.”

Why are SWiT becoming a Cisco Net Academy ?
At SWiT we are passionate about all things inclusion and technology, Cisco Networking Academy is just that! Partnering with them has given us the opportunity to share free technology courses with our network, meaning everyone can access the tools. Whether you are looking to change career, up-skill or want to learn a completely new skill, the course options will give you the chance to explore.
The recent COVID- 19 pandemic has changed the working world. Many people find themselves facing redundancy or work in industries facing uncertain times. We want to help people access resources that can help them learn new skills.
Championing diversity and gender equality in technology is at the heart of all that we do. Our Partnership with Cisco Networking Academy enhances this commitment.
