Ada, the National College for Digital Skills
Ada, the National College of Digital Skills a specialist college which gives students the necessary digital skills to build their potential and help them begin a successful career in tech. We want to inspire our students and help them appreciate that right now there is an unprecedented period of opportunity for digital pioneers. Our mission is to educate and empower the next generation of diverse digital talent.
The digital industry is experiencing epic growth but there is a talent shortage. Over 130,000 tech jobs are available each year in the UK but students are leaving education without sufficient knowledge and experience to get the job. We want to change this.
With Ada, students can learn relevant digital skills to pursue their dream job in tech. We are a unique community which puts computer programming at the heart of everything we do. Our students are the future game changers: challenging the norm, excited by change, and resilient in the face of adversity.
Our strong industry connections bridge the gap between education and the real world. With the backing of our founding partners: Bank of America, Deloitte, Gamesys, IBM, King and the Aldridge Foundation, we can continue to grow.
We work directly with employers, big and small, to create opportunity. The Ada community is founded on a passion and expertise in digital and of strong desire to support our students.
We want to remove the glass ceiling for women and individuals from low-income backgrounds in the tech industry. Everyone, from any background, is entitled to a quality education and a better future.
