</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 and activities that are helping a larger and more diverse group of learners into digital careers. We launched in January 2018 in response to the UK’s digital skills gap, with £20-million in funding from the Office for Students.

We’ve now expanded the project to include the Industrial Masters for Artificial Intelligence programme (IMAI), which is led by the Office for Artificial Intelligence, and the consortium, led by Coventry University, who are involved in the campaign to fill 2,500 new places on postgraduate artificial intelligence and data science conversion courses.

We’re focused 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.
