If you are serious about IT and gaining industry recognised professional qualifications from a quality provider, Nescot offers an unrivalled range. Nescot was the first Further Education College in the UK to become a Cisco Academy in 1998 and since that time has been offering Cisco Networking courses.
We are the first Cyberoam Network Security Academy in the UK. We train and support Universities, FE colleges and private training providers across the UK, offering everything from advice and guidance to training and instructors.
We at Nescot are pleased to announce that we have gained CITRIX and SAP Academy status: another first for any FE college in the UK.

The Internet is changing life as we know it – bringing new economic and social opportunities to communities throughout the world, and increasing the global demand for information and communication technology (ICT) skills. Innovations such as social networking, cloud computing, e-commerce, web conferencing, and desktop virtualisation are changing the way we live, work, play, and learn.
These capabilities are all powered by networks, and organizations around the world are experiencing a shortage of qualified ICT candidates to design, install, and manage these networks.
