Loughborough College and the National Space Academy have worked with industry to develop and deliver the first ever Higher Apprenticeship course in Space Engineering.
For more in-depth information visit the designated website for the Higher Apprenticeship here.
This country wide course offers work-based degree-level training, and is designed to produce high-level technicians for the space sector, which is currently worth £11 billion annually to the UK economy.
"One of the major potential hurdles that could stifle the space sector's growth is a lack of high-level technical entrants. These Higher Apprenticeships tackle this issue head on, strengthening the industry through these academically rigorous, sector-specific programmes with a focus on stimulating progression from Advanced Level into degree-level vocational pathways.
