Institute Of Technology

Craven College is delighted to be an integral part of the Yorkshire and Humber Institute of Technology (IoT), which is a consortium of Colleges in the region in receipt of an investment of circa £10 million of capital funding from the Department of Education.

The purpose of the IoT is to enable the College to invest in industry-standard equipment and provide higher-level technical training. This massive training boost will enhance employment opportunities and ensure highly qualified employees for the regions’ employers.

The IoT has received significant levels of employer support. Local Digital businesses, including Skipton Building Society, Computershare and Selestial Software and Media have recognised the need for investment in education to address their digital skills shortages and are now involved as partners in designing and delivering a unique, employer-led curriculum, supported by research from the universities. Other businesses with similar interests are joining the group and the door is open for others to become a partner if they wish. Employers will be part of the governance of the IoT to ensure continued collaboration and long term benefits for the region.

This is a really important development for Craven College. We already have very well established IT, graphics and digital media courses, but this new investment will enable us to create a whole new floor of fantastic industry-standard facilities so that students can develop up to date Digital Skills. Working with our rapidly growing number of employer partners will ensure that our curriculum is designed and delivered to create future employees with the skills businesses require locally and regionally.
