We welcome the nine IoTs in development to the IoT Network. As a Network of 21, we look forward to expanding on our delivery of high quality, higher level technical education and training across a range of STEM occupations and industries.

Specialising in subjects such as advanced manufacturing, construction, digital and cyber security, aerospace, and healthcare, we welcome the opportunity to expand our support for employers in getting the talent they need to thrive through high quality, innovative and flexible education and offering learners the prestigious and affordable education options they require.

The IoT Network now includes over 70 colleges, 30 universities and 100 employers.

Commenting on the news, Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi said that the nine new Institutes of Technology

“will boost access to more high-quality and flexible education and training – giving people the chance to learn at a pace that is right for them, while ensuring we have the skilled workforce needed to boost our economy. Ensuring everyone is given the opportunity to reach their full potential, no matter their age or life stage, is a vital part of our mission to level up this country.”
