Education provider partnerships

The image above shows a​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​rtist’s impression of the collaborative undertaking between University of Gloucestershire, Swindon College and New College Swindon.

Partnerships to support​ learning​

​​​​​​University of Gloucestershire prides itself on its well-established partnerships. We work with many FE Colleges, schools and other universities to reach the people interested in studying engineering technology subjects. These partnerships are created to encourage aspiration for progression in engineering among all our students,​ and meet strong local employer demand.​​

Announced by Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, our successful £21m joint bid will see the U​niversity set up a Government-backed Institute of Technology (IoT)​ in collaboration with partner institutions, Swindon College and New College Swindon.​ See our latest news pages for full details of the announcement.

​​​​​​This is part of a long-term, strategic investment by the University to expand our portfolio and build on the expertise we already have in computing, design and technology.

The news comes just two weeks after the University announced the launch​ of a suite of degree programmes in a range of engineering specialisms starting this September, and further emphasises the University’s growing role in ​offering higher level technical education to address skills gaps in key STEM areas.​​

​​​Engineering courses at the IoT

The following courses are a sample​ of what will be available to study at the Institute of Technology. Follow the links to find out more about the options currently available to study ​at University of Gloucestershire.

​ *Available for study from September 2020​​​​

Gloucestershire Engineering Training

​We also work closely with ​Gloucestershire Engineering Training​ to deliver apprenticeships. GET has been providing work-based learning in engineering for 40 years and is the only training facility in the county that is run by the manufacturing and engineering industry for the engineering Industry. ​GET deliver a number of level 3 apprenticeship programmes, details for which can be found on their website.
