The competition for the second wave of new Institutes of Technology (IoT) has been launched by the UK Government.
Eight new state of the art Institutes will bring together colleges, universities and employers, to offer higher level technical training in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects, including digital, construction, advanced manufacturing and engineering. £120 million has been made available for this second wave to all regions of the country without an IoT, including the North West, Midlands, East of England and parts of the South East.
This collaboration will help to deliver the technical knowledge and practical workplace skills that employers need, and to rebuild the economy after coronavirus.
For details on how to apply, the competition guidance and the application form, go to the DfE eTendering Portal.
The deadline for applications is the 14th December 2020.
