Bloom VLE, CoSector and the University of London

Bloom is the specialist arm of CoSector at the University of London (UoL). If you’ve not heard of us before, that’s because we’ve evolved from the UoL's Computer Centre (ULCC) meaning we have a whole host of education and technology expertise that you may not find elsewhere.

You’ll be working with an educational organisation just like your own, so you can be assured that your VLE wants and needs will be entrusted into a safe pair of hands.
