New college will boost women in tech sector

Female - New college aim to engage 20% of female student - SantanderCB

A new college is to be opened in Tottenham Hale in London with the aim of engaging 20% of female students in its first enrolment. Ada College will launch in September, and will be the first new further education college to open in 23 years. The college will offer the chance to learn about writing code, inventing apps and launching start-ups. Patron Baroness Lane-Fox said the college is needed as the proportion of women in the tech sector is even worse than in Parliament at about 17%, and fewer than one in 10 are in leadership positions. All students at will take a BTEC in computer science, learn two programming languages and do an extended project that could result in the creation of an app, website or business. Founding partners for the state-funded college are IBM, Deloitte and King, the maker of Candy Crush.
