Keep up-to-date with our vision to bring a sector leading Institute of Technology to Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
Backed by training providers, NSCG, Keele University, Burton & South Derbyshire College and Axia Solutions, alongside key employer partners; Dell, Hitachi, Moog and Siemens, the £13M Institute of Technology (IoT) development will bring together industry, education and research to jointly design and develop education and training opportunities aligned to the skills needed by employers, the local, regional and national economy and Government priorities for technical education.
Utilising a hub and spoke approach, the IoT will serve the communities of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent from a number of key locations and will see employers and academia working collaboratively to widen participation in targeted STEM areas, with a focus on manufacturing and engineering across a wide range of specialisms, including the built environment, health sciences, sustainability and digital technology/innovation.

An experienced strategic leader, Jason will be responsible for working with local employers and education providers to turn the current Institute of Technology vision into reality.
