DfE today (30 Nov) published the government’s plans for institutes of technology, why we need them and who can get involved in their development.
Click here for information on the government’s plans to create high-quality institutions specialising in the higher level technical skills that employers need.
DfE are encouraging employers, further education (FE) providers and higher education (HE) providers to collaborate in developing institutes of technology (IoTs), to create a new and distinctive learning offer.
DfE will launch a call for proposals to establish IoTs before the end of 2017.
Applicants will be able to bid for funding from a £170 million capital fund to establish IoTs across England.
