INTRODUCING ADA'S MANCHESTER HUB, SERVING GREATER MANCHESTER AND THE WIDER NORTH-WEST REGION
Manchester is the largest tech hub in the UK outside of London and has been ranked the #1 UK city for IT professionals to live and work. It is also the fastest-growing European tech city according to the 2020 Tech Nation report.
It’s no surprise given Manchester’s long history of innovation and creativity, from spearheading the industrial revolution to developing the world’s first computer.
With support from Manchester City Council and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, along with key industry figures and employers, we are delivering digital skills courses and degree apprenticeships from our base in Manchester city centre.
Our strong industry connections bridge the gap between education and the real world. We are working closely with local, national and international industry partners rooted in the region, and are currently inviting new employers to work with us at the forefront of digital skills development in the region.
APPRENTICESHIPS IN MANCHESTER
Our first cohort of apprentices in the region started their training in February 2021, on our Digital Innovation Apprenticeship, a two-year programme aligned to the Level 4 Software Developer Standard. There is an optional third year of study with Ada to top up to a full BSc Degree Apprenticeship.
