</The IoC Mission>
Our mission is to break down barriers to digital learning and employment. We believe learning should be a lifelong process and that everyone has a right to improve their skills. We want to spread opportunity by offering access to education, providing what you need, when you need it, in a place you can reach.
/The IoC and our projects
We’re a large national consortium of educators, employers and outreach organisations that is co-developing new courses to help a larger and more diverse group of learners into digital careers.
The IoC was launched in January 2018 in response to the UK’s digital skills gap, with £20 million in funding from the Office for Students. With this initial project complete, we are continuing our work across a variety of exciting projects, including developing and delivering a series of Skills Bootcamps for the Department for Education.
Our previous work includes high-profile projects like the Industrial Masters for Artificial Intelligence programme (IMAI), which was led by the Office for Artificial Intelligence and the Office for Students-led campaign to fill 2,500 new places on postgraduate artificial intelligence and data science conversion courses.
We are continuing to focus on providing a fresh and disruptive approach to digital learning that incorporates industry input at all points and keeps the focus on diversity and inclusion. Together, we’re creating a change in the way we equip people with digital skills.
