The London City Institute of Technology will be a partnership between Newham College and Queen Mary University of London, with support from key employers, the Greater London Authority and the London Borough of Newham.
Newham College is one of 12 Institutes of Technology established nationally to provide employers with a highly skilled workforce and students with a clear route to technical employment.
With over £28 million in funding secured, the London City Institute of Technology will specialise in delivering higher technical education and apprenticeships with a focus on STEM subjects such as engineering, digital and low-carbon growth.
In collaboration with Queen Mary University of London, we will offer students industry-standard qualifications in key sectors so they can progress directly into employment:
By bringing together further education colleges, universities and businesses, Institutes of Technology (IoTs) offer top-quality, higher-level technical education and apprenticeships to help plug local skills gaps, raise productivity and transform opportunities for local people.
IoTs are designed to help employers get the skilled workforce they need in much sought-after higher technical areas and offer young people a clear path to a rewarding career. They also support those looking to reskill or upskill with a range of technical courses and flexible learning options.
