The monthly round-up from the Anthony Collins Solicitors charities team.
This social enterprise founded by two young entrepreneurs’ aims to confront the country’s digital skills gap.
The co-founders Mark Smith and Tom Fogden had created a specialist further education college working on a social mission with disadvantaged young people in Tottenham Hale to enable them to become involved in learning and developing skills to take jobs in technology.
The College has paired itself with apprenticeship providers such as Google, Deloitte Digital, Henderson Global Investors and Legal & General Investment Management to provide a higher level apprenticeship in digital innovation.
These industry partners have worked to ensure an industry designed curriculum to enable and create a new generation of high quality software engineers.
The College is named after ADA Lovelace, the early 19th century mathematician who wrote what many regard as the first computer programme. The College’s other aim is to increase and encourage the number of girls and young women who work in digital jobs.
The College is a triumph of innovation and motivation by its joint founders. Its temporary home involved the redevelopment of a council centre near Tottenham Hale station and its permanent home should be constructed in the next 2 to 3 years.
This project saw Anthony Collins Solicitors (ACS) provide expert advice on education issues, lease issues, procurement and construction issues, property development advice and funding advice. This project showed ACS working across multiple disciplines to ensure a successful opening. The ACS team was led by Dominic Curran and included Ranjit Bassey, Alex Tindall, Richard Brooks, Beulah Allaway, Richard More and Jon Coane.
