FOUNDED IN 2019, WE'RE ONE OF THE 12 ORIGINAL INSTITUTES OF TECHNOLOGY
Strategically aligned with colleges, universities, and employers, our mission is to empower our region's businesses with cutting-edge tech-focused education. Partnered with 7 leading colleges in Yorkshire and Humber, and supported by 2 universities and numerous local businesses, we offer a diverse array of learning experiences through our partners, tailored to our region's fastest-growing industries. Tech-driven education, shaping the future. That's us.
Our ‘Golden Thread’
Each IoT specialises in subjects that suit their region’s skills needs. Ours are Agritech (including animal management), Engineering & Construction, and Digital (including Cyber Security and Creative).
But what sets us apart is our unwavering embrace of the metaverse as the key to transforming education and employment. Our Golden Thread.
The metaverse is no longer a distant dream; it's a powerful reality with trillion-dollar potential for global GDP uplift, as predicted by industry giants like McKinsey and PWC and we're seizing this opportunity to revolutionise learning and prepare our students for the workplace of tomorrow.
Immersive, spatial, and metaverse technologies are already reshaping education and beyond. Through these cutting-edge tools, we create dynamic, boundary-breaking learning environments that foster collaboration and empower our students to be tech-savvy professionals.
But don't just take our word for it. Our partners, VISR Dynamics and York St John University, have shown a jaw-dropping 60% increase in short-term memory retention through immersive learning experiences. The metaverse is no longer a futuristic concept; it's the game-changer that our students, partners, and community need.
