Boosting tech training – Cisco, World Bank join forces

 | 

Cisco Systems Inc. has joined with World Bank Group and the International Youth Foundation to expand technology training for underserved students worldwide.

The Global Partnership for Youth Development will support The Cisco Networking Academy, which assists schools globally to access and use technology in education.

The Global Partnership was developed jointly by the World Bank and the International Youth Foundation.

Cisco Networking Academy will use the funds to extend technology training to more remote areas in the Philippines. Thirty Cisco programs already are active in the region.

The new partnership is being launched at a trade college in Manila, Philippines, 85 percent of whose students are women.

The four-semester curriculum will teach to students to design, build and maintain computer networks.

Cisco Networking Academies are active in all 50  states in the U.S. and in 60 countries abroad.
