Institutes of Technology are unique collaborations between employers, higher, and further education providers. They are specialising in delivering higher-level technical skills which aim to help close skills gaps and improve productivity. The Government is backing the new institutes with £170million of capital funding.
The Lincolnshire Institute of Technology is being established to offer an exciting range of high-level technical qualifications in the areas of agri-tech, food manufacturing, digital, energy, and engineering.
A unique collaboration between the University of Lincoln and employers and Further Education providers across Greater Lincolnshire aims to open up opportunities for students to gain industry-relevant skills to help tackle some of the key challenges facing the technology industries.
