Vocational / Skill Development

An Essential Element of Higher Education

Vocational Institutions are an integral part of the education system. They offer numerous benefits to the communities they serve, including:

  • Providing open and affordable access to postsecondary education
  • Equipping the workforce with vital skill sets for any number of industries
  • Allowing students to transfer to four-year institutions
  • Helping high school students transition into college

With their open admission requirements, vocational institutions have the unique capacity to educate non-traditional students and improve their chances in the job market. Distance education is critical to the long-term strategy of these institutions; more than half of all students enrolled in online courses are taking them at a community college.

Cisco and vocational institutions have a long history of collaboration and partnership. Cisco Networking Academy is deployed in delivering ICT skills to students in more than 200+ educational institutions in India.
