Digital School join Cisco Networking Academy

Orchard Hill College (Digital School) have been invited to join the Cisco Networking Academy (CNA).

Since 1997, Cisco Networking Academy has been working toward a single goal: fostering the technical and entrepreneurial skills that people, educators, and companies need to change the world for the better.

Historically their offering has been targeted at mainstream learners, but they are expanding their provision to encompass students with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

The Digital school lead by Simon Gale will work closely with Andrew Smith from the Open University to develop new resources for students learning at a lower level that can deliver real social impact.

We look forward to bringing you more progress updates about this venture.

 

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of OHC&AT will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.   We are looking forward to a bright future as part of the OHC&AT family.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
