Fastweb Digital Academy

Fastweb Digital Academy is the school for new digital professions. Established in Milan in 2016 as part of Cariplo Factory, the school is now funded by Fastweb and aims to accelerate the insertion of young people into the world of work through specialised training courses on digital skills provided completely free of charge.

Since it was founded in 2016 until the end of 2022, over 68,000 participants have been trained in more than 870 classes (on-site and online via streaming) and through the 80 on-demand recorded courses provided by the Academy.
We strongly believe in the importance of disseminating digital skills and therefore want to continue and strengthen the Academy's activities in the future by reaching more and more people throughout Italy. Our goal is to reach 500,000 learners by 2025.

There are five teaching areas:

Digital Creativity
Digital Development & Security
Digital Marketing & Social
Digital Soft Skill & Office
Sustainability and Inclusion

All Fastweb Digital Academy courses are taught by specialists and professionals in the relevant fields.
The courses are free, open to everyone and a certificate is issued upon completion certifying the skills that have been acquired.
Fastweb Digital Academy also organises digital workshops open to the public, courses aimed at women and professional courses dedicated to training cyber-security experts.

The initiative is inspired by the realisation that there is a need to call upon resources and skills for the creation of future professionals and digitally literate workers, something which is indispensable for the digital transformation of Italy.
