Education partners

Employer partners


Institutes of Technology are funded by the Government to support local employers to create training learning and professional development in the key area of technical education focused on Levels 4 and 5. These higher technical skills will enable more employers to embrace the changes brought by digitalisation and the industrial 4.0 revolution. In order to compete in a global market we must have more of our workforce able to operate in this space, and the Institutes of Technology are designed to create that future workforce ready for the challenges of tomorrow.

IoTs offer an alternative to universities by specialising in delivering higher-level technical training.
This method of study offers a route for young people taking T Levels or A Levels to move onto higher-level technical education and will set them on the path to high-skilled careers.
IoTs also cater for those who are already in employment looking to develop new skills or adult learners who want to access further training.

Employers will shape the WEIoT curriculum, and we are working closely with employers in the following sectors:

• Digital
• Health
• Advanced engineering

We are also able to support employers delivering:

• Business process efficiencies
• Leadership and management
• Change management
• Project management
• Agile and Creative Thinking.

As this is a partnership, we share a vision to combine our expertise to ensure a significant growth in the number and range of people able to acquire and utilise skills for our digital future.
WEIoT will deliver digital capabilities to enable a distributed delivery model to extend learning beyond physical boundaries, supporting you to become the ‘creators and makers’ of the future.

One Message, Different Voices

Take a look at this powerful film made by the staff of Weston College to show how important it is for everyone from different backgrounds to be included. The film shares heartfelt stories and interviews with a diverse group of staff, showing how accepting different identities and backgrounds can make a big difference. Its purpose is to encourage viewers to think about their own biases and work towards making our community more welcoming to all. We invite everyone, regardless of their background, to join us and be a part of our journey toward a more inclusive future.

Halo workplace logo

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employee's ability to succeed.
