Isle of Wight College is delighted to announce that it has received funding from the Department of Education (DfE) which will help the college grow and further develop its existing higher education offering.
This successful offering also builds on the college’s recent success in obtaining DfE permission to use the “University Center, Isle of Wight” brand title.
The objective of the Higher Technical Education Provider Growth Fund is to develop and create additional capacities to develop a high-quality offering and enhance the prestige of approved higher technical qualifications among learners and employers.
Isle of Wight College Principal Debbie Lavin CBE commented:
“The funding obtained through this offer will allow the college to strengthen its existing good relations with employers. We look forward to launching the first digital higher technical qualification, with the first promotion for software developers, starting in September 2023. ”
The government has expressed its commitment and determination to reform higher technical education, which in turn will support the Isle of Wight College by enabling learners to acquire the skills they need to strengthen the UK economy.
Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said:
“We also want to counter the myth that a degree is the only way to get a good job. This funding will help open more high-quality training alternatives for people, enabling them to acquire the skills they need to build the lives they want, wherever they live.
