Institute of Technology (IOT)

Welcome to the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (IOT) page. Here you will find everything you need to know about the IOT courses we offer at Lincoln College, including further information about the Institute, a full list of courses available, and how to apply.

Supporting Technical Skills Development in Lincolnshire

The Institutes of Technology (IOT) have been formed across England to enhance the career and employment chances of young people and adults.

The programmes that have been created at the institutes have been designed in collaboration with employers, colleges, and universities to ensure students are work-ready and to offer clear career progression.

At the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology, our aim is to develop the talent and skills to drive exciting new age industries and play a role in enabling a dynamic, technology-driven economy. We have a range of Level 4, 5 and 6 coures covering three IOT pathways - Automotive EngineeringDigital Technologies, and Electrical Engineering.

The Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (IOT) is a collaboration between the University of Lincoln and Further Education providers across Greater Lincolnshire.

The IOT specialises in delivering high quality technical education across industries with a focus on Engineering, Digital, Automotive, Manufacturing, and Constructions subjects, opening up opportunities for students to gain industry-relevant skills to overcome some of the key challenges facing the technical industries.

The courses have been designed to develop the essential skills and experience needed for a range of pathways to ensure learners complete their training career-ready.

At Lincoln College, we have a range of Level 4, 5 and 6 coures covering three IOT pathways:

A multi-million-pound investment has been made to refurbish our oldest Grade II listed Gibney building to house the IOT.

It has been designed to replicate the latest progressive working environments.

We have also equipped all of our workshops and classrooms with the latest IT hardwadware, computing, electrical engineering and automotive engineering equipment.

View below some photos of the newy-refurbished Gibney building:
