IoTs offer flexible higher technical qualifications and apprenticeships that can fit around your needs. We offer prestigious and affordable education options, whether you’re starting out at 18, or taking a new direction later in life.
An IoT will provide you with the skills that employers need, through high-quality training, industry-expert teachers, and access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Our qualifications are developed with respected industry partners, which means plenty of opportunities for you to meet employers, and reassurance that the skills you are learning are relevant to the job market.

Higher technical education (HTE) is a type of higher education that includes classroom-based qualifications – like HNC/Ds and Foundation Degrees - and higher apprenticeships.
These courses are designed to lead to high skilled jobs, by helping you to gain the skills, knowledge and industry contacts that give you the best chance of getting the job you want.
HTE courses are often shorter and cheaper than three-year Bachelor’s degrees, and the best of them will soon be given a quality mark by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education. Look out for Approved Higher Technical Qualifications from 2022 onwards.
As well as helping you progress in your career, HTE can also be used to fast track to a degree if you want to take your education further later in life.
Institutes of Technology combine the teaching and research expertise of existing FE Colleges and universities, with substantial support from the Government, and the backing of a range of leading employers.
We have invested millions in our facilities and equipment so that you can learn in an environment similar to the modern workplace.
Our courses have been developed in partnership with employers, and we continually review their content to make sure we keep them up-to-date.
We take diversity and inclusion seriously and offer lots of support and small-group teaching as well as the opportunity to study part-time and remotely.
We offer a range of courses and apprenticeships, whether you are looking for a solid foundation to start your career, more advanced skills to get you ready for promotion, or looking to retrain in something completely new.
Don’t worry if there isn’t yet an IoT nearby – the IoT Network is expanding! Another eight will be opening across England in the next few years and will join the current twelve in delivering high-quality technical education in partnership with employers.
Anyone can apply for an IoT course – we welcome anyone with ambition who wants to make a difference in the places they work and the communities in which they live.
We are particularly keen to hear from people interested in subjects like engineering, software development, and health science, but who don’t feel represented in jobs in these sectors.
