Why a DIGITAL education?
The future is digital; that’s why we teach our students digital skills for their future employment. Forecasts show that 65% of children will in the future have a profession that does not yet exist.
We use modern educational procedures and technologies to prepare our graduates for the future, whether for further studies at university or in practical application.
For the purpose of creating an IT grammar school, we partnered with an international IT service provider – the innovative company CANCOM Slovakia. Our cooperation is based on combining theory with regular practice with CANCOM professionals. Future graduates of the IT study will be able to develop their personalities in any field, along with critical thinking and a considerable amount of theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of digital technologies for application in the IT sector after the end of their secondary education.
- Preparing for a career in IT or university
- The possibility of getting a job in any international IT company
- Participation of specialists from CANCOM Slovakia in education
- Insight into the functioning of an international IT company
- Application also in other industries, such as automation, robotics, medicine, construction, management, among others.
- Operating systems
- Public cloud
- IT skills
- Computer systems and networks
We support IT already at the grammar school level. Apply to win Apple AirPods Pro.
There is likely no area where knowledge of informatics would not be used. They are everywhere around us, in every field and every focus, including the humanities. Paradoxically, however, we think that IT education doesn’t receive sufficient attention.
From the applications received for the 2023/2024 school year, we will choose one student who will win the wonderful Bluetooth headphones Apple AirPods Pro 2022. Just submit an application.
How are we different

The people behind the project
Director of FUTURUM
She has devoted her whole professional life to the education of Slovak and foreign students. She, too, considers computer skills to be exceedingly important, and therefore sees the establishment of an IT grammar school as an opportunity to profile graduates who are ready for both practice and university studies using the modern technologies of today. She wants to follow in the footsteps of the Trenčín grammar school in the “Slovak Silicon Valley”, because the need in the labour market in Košice in this area is constantly growing.
Managing director CANCOM
He has worked in the IT and telecommunications sector for more than 15 years, most of that time in managerial positions and functions. In the last two years, he has built and managed the company CANCOM Slovakia, s.r.o., in Kosice. He was previously responsible for the Global Security Operations Centre within Freudenberg IT. He also actively takes part in all topics related to the protection of personal data within the EU as well as the USA. He has experience with building global operational centres for IT companies, particularly in Košice in the area of telecommunications and overall IT.
Manager of FUTURUM
She acquired many years of management experience at Education Training & Consulting Company, a.s., as a senior area manager, and in 2013, she founded the FUTURUM Private Grammar School in Košice focused on English bilingual studies. Since school has been a member of IT Valley since 2016, it also enthusiastically supported the idea of creating an IT grammar school, which was born in Trenčín, where successful education in this field connecting theory with practice and bilingual studies with IT studies has been taking place for the third year.
She graduated as a teacher of general education subjects at the UPJŠ Faculty of Science in Košice with a certification in mathematics and computer science. After graduating from university, she worked at the Institute of Digital Technologies, the Centre for Lifelong and Competence Education of the University of Prešov. She has been working in the IT sphere from various perspectives throughout her professional life and she is therefore aware of the importance of digital knowledge and skills. She therefore wants to play a part in increasing the digital literacy of young people and pass on her knowledge to students of the IT department.
