</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.

/Who are we?

We’re a growing family of 33 universities and more than 81 employers across England and Wales – from Newcastle and Sunderland in the North East, through Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and London, to Exeter in the South West.

As an initiative funded by the Department for Education via the Office for Students, we work with different areas of the government including:

  • The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport
  • The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
  • The Office for AI

To reach more learners, we listen to outreach organisations on our Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board. To understand what businesses need, we rely on leading advice from organisations like techUK on our Industry Advisory Board.

Together, we’re creating a change in the way we equip people with digital skills. Talk to us to discover how you can help us achieve our mission.
