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 deliver higher technical education and apprenticeships in a range of STEM occupations, including specialisms in engineering, digital and construction – critical sectors requiring investment as we rebuild the London economy post-pandemic.
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.Interested? Get involved
Newham College is delighted to be working in partnership with Queen Mary University and its anchor employers to offer a new and engaging model of higher level, employer endorsed training pathways.
These pathways will bridge the current skills gap within current and emerging in-demand technologies, and will in turn provide higher levels of well-qualified applicants within the transport, infrastructure, engineering, digital and energy sectors.Paul Stephen, Prinicipal and CEO, Newham College
We are thrilled to be establishing, with Newham College and our corporate partners, the London City Institute of Technology – which will open the doors of opportunity for thousands of students for years to come.
We are looking forward to bringing our world-leading research and teaching to this Institute of Technology and the vocational and technical qualifications it will deliver. The Institute’s innovative programmes will also help to fill skills gaps for employers in our part of London as well as leading to quality roles for many.
Throughout Queen Mary’s history we have remained committed to ensuring that an outstanding education is available for any student with the potential to succeed, no matter where they come from. For Queen Mary, this Institute of Technology is a new chapter in that historyProfessor Colin Bailey, President and Principal, Queen Mary University of London
