Technology for further education

The Institute of Technology, Harrow and Uxbridge College

On the 2nd July our CTIO had the privilege of joining HCUC’s inaugural meeting of the The Institute of Technology (IoT) to learn more about the five year plans and to start to help building the future role of technology in the education of our young adults.

Local Industry leaders

Scott joined other local industry leaders (including Heathrow, Fujitsu, Morgan Sindall, Hillingdon Chamber of Commerce, West London Alliance, ECITB, Pearson, MMB, West London Business and Brunel University London) to share thoughts on immediate and longer term employer challenges relating to the employability of students, the nature of employment and the role of both the IoT and technology in those futures.

It was discussed that the new IoT initiative presented an opportunity to break the mould, and really be a trailblazer in discovering new ways for colleges and employers to work together, as well as building a new experience and new curriculum structures to help both students and professional be more ready and able to adapt to the future skills demand.

A big part of the conversation was around diversity and the opportunity to create more appealing, more future-ready courses that mix both the soft and hard skills.

Tomorrow’s car mechanics will need to be proficient in software, mechanics, design and ethics, so education needs to move further away from the legacy silos to broader, more encompassing soft-hard skill sets.

We look forward to continuing to support this very worth while initiative.
