Barcelona Activa presents IT Academy, a free program for highly specialised training in the ICT sector to train the qualified profiles most requested by the companies of Barcelona. It includes more than 300 training hours in web developing (front end, back end and Android Mobile) and data analysis (big data), using a personalized self-learning method and an expert mentored service to accompany those who participate during the whole process.

Once the training period is finished, and the needed knowledge is acquired, Barcelona Activa facilitates the recruitment process.

This project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union in the Catalunya ERDF Operational Program 2014-2020.






IT Academy is aimed at all those people who want to retrain themselves or find work in the ICT world, one of the better paid sectors with greater projection. That is why two types of face-to-face training have been designed to adapt better to the needs and goals of the possible participants:

1 - Training in Programming

IT Academy offers training in Front-End, Back-End and Android Mobile using an innovative model of mentored training, in which the participants acquire knowledge about programming by means of self-learning online platforms, and participate in teams of simulation of real projects. Furthermore, with the permanent mentoring service, a professional expert will accompany them to progress when they require so.

2- Training in Data analysis

Moreover, IT Academy counts on intensive courses (Bootcamp), up to 250 hours, designed to boost specific technological knowledge in data analysis, and to adapt it to the latest innovations of the ICT sector.
