Bletchley Park could become Institute of Digital Technology under £20m plans

Codebreakers may return to Bletchley Park in 2020 under ambitious plans to turn the home of World War Two cryptographers into an Institute of Digital Technology, reports NS Tech.

A consortium led by Milton Keynes College is seeking to transform the site’s derelict Block D into a centre for the teaching of technical qualifications and apprenticeships in a number of fields including cyber security.

The group, which includes Microsoft, KPMG and Bletchley Park Trust, is now bidding for £20m of government funding to redevelop the site where Alan Turing cracked the Enigma code during World War Two.
