We are leaders in the provision of high quality, higher level technical education and training across a range of STEM occupations and industries.
Our multi-million-pound IoT (Institute of Technology) site sees the historic grade II-listed Stonebridge House into a state-of-the-art Engineering and Digital Skills hub. The IoT project has restored Stonebridge House back to its former glory by turning it in to a cutting-edge teaching and learning facility. The building is equipped with IT design studios, digital technology suites, and Engineering robotics facilities. IoTs specialise in delivering higher technical university-level education (at Levels 4 and 5) with a focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects. At Grantham College, the Institute of Technology focuses on Engineering and Digital routes. Grantham College has a strong background in Engineering and welcomes the opportunity via the IoT to fill skills gaps in local industries. As the IoT will provide the latest innovative technologies to work with, the College is putting on many new Digital courses.
IoT courses at Grantham College include HNC/D Computing and Systems Development, Cloud Computing, Digital Technologies, Engineering (Manufacturing, Electrical, and Mechanical) courses and new apprenticeships in Automation and Controls, and Software Development.
The Institutes of Technology (IOT) are collaborations between colleges, universities and employers and have been formed across England to enhance the career and employment chances of young people and adults. They focus on the specific technical skills required to bridge the skills gaps in our local area. IoTs provide employers with a skilled workforce and students with a clear route to technical employment. Grantham College is a member of the consortium of further and higher education providers, led by the University of Lincoln that will bring substantial capital funding to our region with the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (#LIoT).
IoT courses are employer led and informed. The Lincolnshire IoT involves working partnerships with employers including Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd, Olympus Automation Limited, and Bakkavor Plc. The employers will contribute in a real way to the delivery of the courses, providing opportunity for students to visit and attend businesses, and ensuring that IoT graduates can deliver what businesses want when they graduate. The Grantham College IoT is creating the training that local businesses need, and that give students the best opportunity of employment when they graduate, in good jobs.
The College offers both accredited and free industry standard workbased learning and management and technical training. Bespoke skills solutions are also available which can be completely tailored to meet your individual business needs. We offer a range of courses, from Apprenticeships, NVQs in the workplace to short distance learning and digital bootcamps.
