Higher Apprenticeship in Space Engineering launched in Midlands

Loughborough College, in partnership with the National Space Centre, have developed a brand new Higher Apprenticeship that will launch people into the Space Engineering industry in January 2014.

The Higher Apprenticeship in Space Engineering, is a unique programme designed to provide the UK Space Engineering industry with highly skilled personnel.

‘Our Higher Apprenticeship has been developed by the industry, for the industry and will help to bridge the skills gap that has emerged in the sector.’

The Space Engineering Industry is worth a massive £9.1 billion to the UK economy every year and is currently growing at a rate of 7.5%. The Higher Apprenticeship in Space Engineering will help to sustain this growth – direct consultation with the industry has shown that there is a need for new entrants to take advantage of the growing opportunities in the sector and our programme will deliver these personnel.

January 2014 will see the first intake of apprentices so if you want to become an apprentice or are an employer and you want to take advantage of this exciting, new opportunity then SIGN UP for more information.
