PAST RUNS OF DIGITAL ACADEMY

  • The Digital Academy is only taking place in the Czech language.

By mid-2018, we were focused on Data Analytics at Digital Academy (Digital Academy: Data). Since September 2018, we have been expanding it to learn Java coding (Digital Academy: Java). #wannalearnIT

We are raising data analysts, junior programmers, testers and help them to apply for full-time jobs

And we mean that literally! After the first year of the Digital Academy (DA) 146 women can boast with the graduate certificate. Two-thirds of them have changed or found a new job, and for most this has meant a career change of 180°.

Most graduates work in analysis and BI reporting, others find work as developers, testers and many work in management or marketing positions, but also technical consultants or have positions in UX design.

Come join us!

What can you gain by completing the Digital Academy?

  • Comprehensive education package in data analytics

  • Career guidance and personal branding

  • Link to partner companies not only in the field of data analytics and the possibility to view their work and corporate culture

  • The opportunity to gain new employment

  • Valuable contacts

Technological development puts higher demands on workers qualifications and their digital literacy. Talented people on the labor market are deplorably few, although women on maternity leave and fresh graduates can not find a good job. We decided to act and build the Digital Academy, that educates qualified candidates for junior positions focused on data processing and visualization. Absolutorium of the Academy serves as a "certificate", therefore a package of skills demonstrating adequate knowledge and qualifications.

For whom is the Digital Academy designed?

Women who want to change their careers and become data analysts, junior programmers or testers.

The Academy is designed for all women who want to dive fully into IT.
We reserve 20% of the Academy seats for mothers on maternity leave or with children up to 15 years old wanting to return to work life.
A further 20% of the seats are reserved for fresh graduates who can not find work in their field of study, and the remaining 60% to all other girls and women who want to retrain and find a new job.
The motivation is very important to us, a great advantage is the previous attendance of a data analytics or programming workshop, as well as other ways of self-education in these fields.

What is the Digital Academy specializing in Data about?

The Academy is built on the knowledge and skills necessary for the work of a data analysts. Therefore Databases, data cleaning, visualization, data analytics, Python and SQL programming.
