The Black Country & Marches Institute of Technology has been developed in a partnership between education and health bodies to provide high-quality training for skilled advanced engineering and manufacturing, modern methods of construction and off-site and medical engineering and healthcare.
The project is changing the landscape of Dudley. The £32.5m development of the IoT’s main campus is led by contractor Speller Metcalfe and will comprise two, large steel frame, three-storey buildings on Castle Hill that cover just under 5,000 m2. The building, which is lean in its design in order to maximise the potential of its space and construction, will open to learners in September this year. It will offer Level 4+ apprenticeships, full and part-time courses plus short courses that provide ongoing CPD and upskilling.
#TeamSwanmac will be on site this summer to install blackout roller blinds to classroom windows. These blinds prevent light from entering and are thus perfect for labs, technical learning environments and classrooms.
