What we specialise in

At Cheshire College – South & West we train students to be the workforce of the future with our courses in computing, engineering, construction and healthcare science. Our continued investment in facilities and equipment means that our students learn in cutting-edge environments that prepare them to start their careers in their chosen industry.

IoT’s are designed to:

Significantly increase the number of students with higher technical qualifications

Provide the skills that employers need, both now and in the future, which are crucial to local, regional and national productivity growth

Attract a diverse range of students to address the lack of diversity in some parts of the technical workforce, to maximise their social as well as economic impact

Support adults, whether in employment or not, who want flexible access to higher-level education

Employer partnerships

Collaborating with an IoT can be an enriching experience, bringing many rewards to employers, students and the local community. Hear from current employers and see how they are benefitting from their partnership.

School leavers

Deciding what your next step is after school can be a big decision but we’re here to help. Hear from students who have chosen an alternative path by studying at an IoT.

Become an adult student

Are you thinking of returning to education? You may be looking to change career or learn news skills to improve your chances of gaining employment. Hear from adult students about their experiences of studying at an IoT and the flexibility that it offers.
