Opening the all-new East Midlands Institute of Technology

Fuelling careers of the future with the EM IoT in a strategic regional collaboration.

As a lead industrial partner, we’re actively propelling students into industry through our strategic collaboration with the East Midlands Institute of Technology (EM IoT). This unique partnership unites colleges, universities, and employers, collectively dedicated to delivering top-tier technical education and innovative training for future workforces.

Our Partners
The EM IoT unities key partners such as the University of Derby, Loughborough University, Derby College, Loughborough College, Bloc Digital, Rolls-Royce, Fujitsu, Alstom, National Grid ESO, and Uniper, creating a hub for innovation and education. This collaborative effort not only prioritises critical engineering, manufacturing, and upskilling but also improves the UK’s adoption of an Industry 4.0 digital revolution.

Unveiling the institution
Our partnership with the EM IoT is not just a collaboration; it's a commitment to supporting the next generation of industry leaders. From an animated Formula 1-themed video unveiling the partnership to a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the brand-new facility with our Co-Founder Keith, Bloc’s journey with the EM IoT promises exciting times ahead for both students and employers for many years to come.
