The Opportunity

Do you see technology fundamentally changing the economy and world around you and care passionately about helping design and build a new type of education institution to prepare people to benefit from these changes? We do, and we’ve got big plans.

From a powerpoint deck to a fully fledged college with significant government and industry backing, the College’s vision and mission has mobilised so many supporters who believe that anyone with a passion for working in the tech sector, from any background, can realise their ambition with a quality education and the right support.

Using digital skills as a tool for social mobility, we particularly want to remove the glass ceiling for women and individuals from low-income backgrounds in the tech industry.

It’s our aspiration that by 2022, 50% of our students will be women and 50% will be from low income backgrounds.

We’re already delivering on our commitments with strong academic results and progression stories. We’re looking for a passionate and committed Chairperson to help us through our next growth phase. Our students are the future game changers: challenging the norm, excited by change, and resilient in the face of adversity. Are you ready to take their lead?
