Our strong connections with industry partners bridges the gap between education and the real world. One way we do this is with the help of industry volunteers who support us in a variety of ways, for example, by coaching our students, advising on our curriculum and delivering sessions within lessons for our students.
The volunteering programme at Ada enriches learning for students, helps build their confidence, supports them in making choices post Ada, helps build social capital through networking, and provides them experiences which they can write about in personal statements and talk about at interview. The programme also supports Ada to keep abreast of what is happening in the digital workplace which supports us in designing our curriculum to respond to the needs of industry.
We are looking for organisations and individuals who can inspire our students and learners through sharing their knowledge, experiences and expertise within digital skills.
