Oracle Academy has a successful track record in Romania for more than a decade. Thousands of teachers and students have participated in various Oracle Academy programs, and some courses have become part of the national curriculum. Success is also due to the local partner, Adfaber, who brings Oracle Academy programs close to pupils and schools. Also, the number of teachers and students interested in the program is increasing; in the last half year, 200 teachers and 650 students actively participated in the Adfaber and Oracle projects.

Oracle Academy leverages Oracle's global technology leadership to offer a complete portfolio of computer science education resources to secondary schools; technical, vocational, and two-year colleges; and 4-year colleges and universities, with the goal of helping students become college and career ready.

Demand for professionals in digital technology has increased by 4 per cent, annually over the last 10 years, according to a European Commission document. For example, the implementation of cloud computing technology has the potential to generate about 2.5 million jobs by 2020, according to a study prepared for the European Commission. However, companies in Europe are striving to find the right IT & C specialists to support them. In the same Digital Diversity Report, the Commission predicted that the gap between IT & C demand and supply would increase to around 500,000 by 2020.

To support continuous computer science learning at all levels, we make available a variety of resources that can be used in the classroom and in not-for-profit academic course- and degree-related research, including technology, curriculum and courseware, student workshops, educator training, and Oracle industry certification and exam preparation materials. Students develop IT and business skills while using production software used widely across hundreds of industries, and educators keep pace with current technology through ongoing professional development.
Education is a prerequisite to community stability, economic prosperity, and future innovation, and students and educators who engage with Oracle Academy gain industry-relevant skills and knowledge that enrich their futures.

In Romania, among the most successful projects developed under Oracle Academy's umbrella are: "Women in IT" , Getting Started with Java Using Alice, Getting Started with Java using Greenfoot.
Java is a widely used programming language at the international level, being one of the most required skills for a programmer. The Java Competition "Code with Greenfoot" ended in March 2019. A total of 70 teachers and 144 high school students participated to demonstrate their programming skills. Contest participants have had the opportunity to practice and expand their programming skills in Java and, with the help of their coordinating teachers, have created real "virtual" worlds. This year's winning project has been designated to Wizard Quest by the students of "Apáczai Csere János" high school in Cluj-Napoca, followed by the Robo War project of the Dragoş Vodă National College's pupils in Sighetu-Marmaţiei and "Spatial project" developed by the students at Nichita Stănescu National College in Ploiesti.
