West London IoT
HCUC (Harrow College & Uxbridge College) is proud to be one of only 12 institutions in the country to be confirmed as an Institute of Technology.
What is an Institute of Technology?
The government has established 12 high-quality institutes of technology (IoTs) across the country which were selected through a government-led competition process.
IoTs are collaborations between further education (FE) providers, universities and employers. They specialise in delivering higher technical education with a focus on STEM subjects - science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Why have they been created?
IoTs have been set up to focus on the specific technical skills needs required in the local and regional area.
Students will be able to progress onto higher level qualifications and from there they will be presented with a clear route to technical employment.
They will benefit from working with universities and employers to enhance their skills and knowledge.
Through developing students to gain higher technical qualifications employers will have access to a well-developed and skilled workforce.
When does West London IoT open?
West London IoT opened for business this September!
There are still some limited places available on Level 3 engineering and computing courses, Level 4 and 5 higher education courses and apprenticeships, so it’s not too late to start for this year. For advice and enrolment dates click here.
Apprenticeships can be started throughout the year and we will begin recruiting for September 2020 intake in October!
