Ada. National College for Digital Skills
Welcome to Ada!
We are Ada, the National College for Digital Skills, a high performing technical college with the mission of educating and empowering the next generation of diverse digital talent.
We work with a fantastic roster of partners such as King, IBM, Deloitte, Salesforce and Bank of America and offer an innovative, supportive sixth form experience for our 150+ students that prepares them to be digital pioneers achieving both academic success and, more importantly, setting them up for successful careers in tech. We are passionate about harnessing tech as a tool for social mobility and improving diversity of opportunity and therefore, with the support of our partners, place a major focus on diversity recruitment. At present over 50% of our students come from low income backgrounds, more than 50% are from Black, Asian or Mixed backgrounds and 23% are young women. We are the top performing sixth form for computer science in the country with >90% of our students going on aspirational digital degree apprenticeships, tech related degree courses or straight into junior technical roles.
This is an exciting time to join Ada as we move into our new state-of-the-art campus in August 2023, just a few minutes walk from Victoria station. The new campus provides us with the capacity to significantly increase our student volumes and meet our ambitious target of transforming 10,000 lives by the end of 2030 while ensuring that we achieve our mission to make the tech sector more representative targeting 50% of learners to be female, 50% to be from ethnic minority backgrounds and 50% to be from low income backgrounds.
We’re passionate about building a supportive, values driven environment for both our students and staff and this is where you come in!
