To ask the Secretary of State for Education, with reference to paragraph 2.47 of the Budget 2020 Red Book, where the eight new institutes of technology will be located.
27 May 2020
In line with our Manifesto commitment, we plan to invest up to £290 million of capital funding to establish 20 Institutes of Technology. This will enable every region in England to have a high quality Institute of Technology. Further to a 15 month competition, the first 12 Institutes of Technology are currently being rolled-out with access to £170 million of capital funding. An additional 8 Institutes of Technology will be selected through a further competition that will be launched later in the year. The competition will only be open to those areas that currently do not have an Institute.
