Building Talent Together

Backed by over £13 million in funding from the Department for Education, the South Coast Institute of Technology is a collaboration of five further education colleges and two universities. We work with well known employers to deliver industry-led courses which fill skills gaps and support the economic growth of the South Coast.

Building has started at several of our partner locations and we look forward to sharing our progress as the year goes on. The South Coast IoT will be welcoming students from September 2023.

In Partnership with Local Businesses

A lot of work has been done to research which skills and capabilities local employers are looking for now, and in their future workforce. We’ve designed and tailored our courses to meet those needs.
