Our primary goal is to facilitate the support of unique academies with an ASC-lite model. Giving the same support as all other typical ASC's. Yet ensuring academic organisations that would otherwise have been unable to engage with the Cisco Academy programme are able to participate. To make this work, the OUASC is run as a community focussed venture enabling academies to grow and contribute to UK and international vocational computing.
While we are UK focussed, we welcome academies from anywhere around the world who wish to become contributing members of our community. Our preference is to support academies at the lowest possible cost, or typically no cost at all. Please take the time to explore this site, understand a little about the Cisco Academy at the Open University, as well as the ethos of the Open University as a whole. The Open University does not derive direct income from any academies we support. Our vision is that this community development model is used to encourage the teaching of vocational computing.
