Dual education programme for companies
Dual education in cooperation with DXC Academy
The DXC Academy and its predecessor organizations have been training IT specialists in the fields of application development and system integration since 1998. Soon a first training cooperation was founded, in which different companies from different industries train together. Meanwhile the training cooperation exists at several locations in Germany.
The IT professions were reorganized in 2020, adding "Digital Networking" and "Data and Process Analysis" to the existing specializations.
The concept stands out against a classical training: The vocational school phases take place in joint classes, the practical phases in the respective company, supplemented by meaningful seminars. The seminar contents are jointly determined by the partners of the training cooperation at the start of the training. Further events round off the two-year training.
The training cooperation is coordinated by the DXC Academy, so that the trainees always have a contact person during the vocational school and seminar phases.

Phases of the education
Trainees in cooperation learn together!The training cooperation brings together trainees from different companies in different industries. Trainees from all fields of study learn together in the seminars of the DXC Academy. Our many years of experience from our dual program have shown that this is a significant success factor for the future of the prospective IT specialists, because many contents are interdisciplinary. The trainees not only learn in their companies, in the vocational school and in the seminars, but also from each other through the exchange of experience within the group.

Highlights of the education
The DXC Academy accompanies and supports the trainees during their training.
And not only by own seminars, kick-offs and feedbacks, but also by special events!
The trainees grow together as a team during their training.
Teambuilding, an important part of the training for the prospective IT specialists. Practical experience in teamwork is necessary for further development. Through active learning in group work and joint experience, further course is set for the step into a successful professional life.
In team training lasting several days, they learn what effects the lack of important success factors has. In the process, the trainees receive feedback on their behavior and impact. This enables them to compare their self-image with that of others through reflection. To create great memories for our trainees, we look for new challenges and locations around team development year after year.
One highlight of the year: Our network meeting.
The network meeting brings together trainees, training officers and managers from all companies involved in training cooperation, project managers and trainers from locations throughout Germany. This is where we hold the finals of the Academy Apprenticeship Award.
The network meeting is a great opportunity for everyone to present themselves, but also offers the chance to network and get to know the partners and trainees within the cooperation better.
Visit to the fair
In the course of the first year of training, the trainees are given a research assignment to find a topic at the cutting edge of technology and to question and test it thoroughly. The results are presented to a jury in the form of a competition, the Academy Apprenticeship Award.
Together with their project managers and the companies' training officers, the prospective IT specialists visit an IT trade fair. There they have the additional task of making contact with various companies, finding out about innovative topics and getting to know the latest IT trends.
