Higher Apprenticeships

technician jwst mirrorLoughborough 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.
