Dual education programme for companies

We support you in the "War for Talents

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.

Benefits of a training offer

Training is a challenge!

The learning objectives defined in the statutory training regulations for information technology professions have created an extremely demanding occupational profile.

If a company wants to meet the complexity of these requirements, the trainers are strongly challenged:

On the one hand, the open framework curriculum gives the companies providing training a great deal of leeway when it comes to implementing the occupational profiles for their own interests, but on the other hand, it requires those responsible for training to do the detailed thematic work.

Since the IT market is subject to constant change, training content must be adapted to the new requirements every year.

Professional competence in core topics of information technology is available to a limited extent at vocational schools. Supplements are necessary e.g. in customer, project and requirements management, in modern development methods such as SCRUM, in developments in complex environments such as SAP or z/OS and especially in the development of personal and social skills.

The trainees must be integrated as apprentices into the ongoing project business in such a way that both projects and trainees benefit from it.

Training brings benefits!

Especially in times of increasing shortage of skilled workers, initial IT training with cooperation partners offers a number of advantages even for medium-sized and small companies:

Within the framework of a demand-oriented training plan, we impart all required skills in practical seminars.

Our experienced trainers and consultants from the field ensure that the know-how is always up-to-date, especially in IT topics.

The costs of these supplementary services are shared by the cooperation partners, e.g. for practice-oriented seminars or project simulations.

The knowledge implemented in project simulations lasting several weeks ensures that trainees are already capable of acting and can be used productively during their training.

Our cooperation partners decide for themselves which scope of services they want to use. The spectrum of services offered ranges from individual seminars to the complete handling of the training.

Training works!

The creation of new apprenticeship places creates a high external impact..
Training companies are given preference when awarding public contracts.
In the "war for talents" an attractive training offer is your advantage.

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.

Group projects

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.
