Anthony is the Chief Executive of ELATT, a leading educational charity in Hackney which has helped hundreds of East Londoners into IT jobs since 1984.

In that time ELATT has achieved Ofsted Outstanding (Grade 1), Investors in People Gold and Provider of the Year at the Times Educational Supplement (TES) FE awards in 2016.
