Teachers sought for Cisco Networking Academy

Government is seeking instructors to teach at the Island’s Cisco Academy when it opens.

An advertisement published in

The Royal Gazette said the IT academy would launch this summer.

Instructors will undergo four weeks of intensive training starting in May.

Applicants are expected to possess an IT industry certification and have three years of IT industry experience or three years teaching experience. Applications are due by the end of this month.

The advertisement described the Academy as a “comprehensive educational programme that teaches students to design, build, troubleshoot and secure computer networks to improve access to career and economic opportunities for communities around the world”.

It stated the programme was part of Government’s commitment to training and preparing Bermudians for the modern workplace.

Government first announced last November that it was in “advanced discussions” to create the academy.

“The Cisco Networking Academy is a comprehensive e-learning programme which provides students with internet technology skills that are essential for the development of countries in the global economy,” Information Minister Michael Scott told the House of Assembly last year.

“The Networking Academy programme delivers web-based content, online assessment, student performance tracking, hands-on labs, instructor training and support and preparation for industry standard certifications.”

One Bermuda Alliance Senator Michael Dunkley said the Opposition supported the programme but stressed that it needed to be put in place sooner rather than later.
