The Black Country & Marches Institute of Technology is a major new development based in Dudley which opened in September 2021.

By providing industry-led training that is designed by employers with clear career progression, we ensure young people and adults have the skills they need to build well-paid rewarding careers, while local businesses gain highly skilled and productive workers.

Today’s technical education for tomorrow’s careers

We offer a wide range of higher-level courses in the following transformational sectors:

Our curriculum includes opportunities from Level 4 to degree level, including Apprenticeships, full-time & part-time programmes, short courses and CPD technical upskilling short courses.

Specialising in higher level technical education programmes and Apprenticeships, our new employer-led Institute brings together the training offer of Dudley College of Technology in collaboration with key partners including University of Wolverhampton, University of Worcester, In-Comm Training Services Limited and Avensys UK Limited.

We also enjoy superb links with employers, many of which have helped us to develop the curriculum offer to ensure our students leave the Institute of Technology work-ready and equipped with the technical skills and qualifications needed by employers locally, regionally and nationally.

Built as one of only 12 Institutes of Technology nationally, our £22 million campus in Dudley was developed as part of the government’s £170 million drive to develop higher-level skills across the UK, with £17.36m of funding secured for the institute through the Department for Education programme and a further £2m from the West Midlands Combined Authority.
