Digital Academy with Czechitas

Czechitas is a Czech non-profit organization trying to widen number of women in IT. They are doing so by organizing wide range of trainings, workshop and lectures in different fields of IT – from coding and testing via graphic design to business intelligence.

Dixons Carphone is proud to cooperate with Czechitas for longer time now. We were ‘lending’ our IT professionals, especially PHP developers to lead PHP training as tutors as well as support the organization financially. The last project we could be a part of was Digital Academy.

Digital Academy was a 3 months intensive project including theoretical lectures, practical workshops, internship in a selected company as well as preparation of the final project, all of it in the field of Business intelligence. After graduating, attendants should be able to gain a position as Junior Business Intelligence Analyst or Junior Analyst in Sales and Marketing. They have learned and practically trained how to work with databases, SQL language as well as data visualization.

Participants were women with very different background – from IT high school teacher, via students, mothers on maternity leave to professionals who have decided to change the field of their profession. Dixons Carphone Centre of Excellence was happy to offer space for theoretical lectures as well as internships for the participants, so they could test in real life their new knowledge. Our colleagues from different financial departments dedicated their time to pass on the knowledge and best practices from real life. We were happy to have the Digital Academy here and we strongly believe that for the participants this is the first important step in their future career in Business Intelligence!
