West London IoT Building
This is a new institution, introduced in 2019 and there are only 12 Institutes of Technology in the country. 
To give you an idea of why the Government has set up Institutes of Technology (IoTs), here are 5 reasons: 

Skill Gaps in STEM Sector 

The amount of students studying higher technical education at Level 4 (HNC) & 5 (HND) in England has been falling, leading to skill gaps in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) sector. To create a more productive and prosperous country, West London IoT has been introduced to tackle these skill gaps. 

Meet Employer Skill Needs 

West London IoT aims to meet employer needs in terms of providing learners with the technical skills employers demand. To do this, West London IoT has anchor partners (Brunel University London, West London Business, Heathrow Airport and Fujitsu) who help design the curriculum, as well as providing work experience.
