Working for a responsible employer can be a fulfilling experience. Through impactful global projects and efforts, DXC Technology and its employees are improving the lives of individuals and communities.

One such impactful project is the DXC Digital Futures Academy. Created in collaboration with the Manchester United Foundation, the DXC Digital Futures Academy is a four-year education program for secondary-school students in the Greater Manchester area.

“We are proud to partner with Manchester United Foundation to use our technology skills to drive positive impact in local communities,” says DXC Technology Executive Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer, Mary Finch. “With the Digital Futures Academy, our colleagues will use their energy, passion and technical expertise to educate and inspire young people in their academic and professional journeys.”

Enhancing career prospects of young people

Developing key social and technical skills, the Academy strives to support and empower young people, connecting them to opportunities they may otherwise not have access to, enhancing their career prospects and shaping the future of work.

School students are taught technology skills spanning a number of key areas including automation, big data, virtual reality, and security, as well as professional development skills.

The curriculum of the Digital Futures Academy is co-created by DXC’s technology experts, Manchester United Foundation, and local teacher advisory groups. Together, they use mentoring, personal development, and practical sessions to build the social leaders of the future. At the end of the program, students are sorted with pathways into further education, colleges, apprenticeships, and employment.

Running a number of social impact initiatives

The Digital Futures Academy is one of a number of social impact initiatives that DXC is running globally.

Further initiatives include its DXC Dandelion Programme that helps neurodivergent individuals build careers in the IT industry.
