CSA also engages in the process of job search for its recruits after the 1st year completion at junior level in a top level international IT companies and industries.


What makes the CSA unique is the blended educational approach, which combines new EdTech approaches and modern methodologies with the old-school live teaching and new visualization techniques, i.e. scribing. Our blended approach is a careful calibrated combination of live and e-learning tools and techniques, but the most important part is the human centered gamification, and individual motivation profiling of each student.

Our special objective are:
1. To create the perfect engagement loop for learning or the new educational Pokemon GO, and after to apply is for students, but also for adults.
2. To teach confidence in the knowledge and skills each academy students acquires or possess.
3. To successfully compete the CSA students on the labor market and to give a real job to people from social disadvantaged groups.

The CSA offers many additional activities, trying to support our students during their educational endeavour, e.g. carrier support center, personal and legal support center, allowing us to work with social disadvantages young people.
