HNC Lighting Design and Technology Graduates

Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning (HVAC), EMEA, Talent
The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) is celebrating the graduation of its first student intake from the UK Higher National Certificate (HNC) course in Lighting Design and Technology introduced in 2017.

 

Matt Dougan of Osram Opto Semiconductors and Ruth Barker of Tameside MBC were presented with certificates at a graduation ceremony which was held at the University of South Wales (USW). The course is taught through a partnership between the LIA and USW.

 

Speaking at the ceremony, Ruth said:

"I chose to do the part-time HNC in Lighting Design and Technology as it was a fantastic opportunity to progress both my knowledge and career with a University recognised qualification. The block release units fit around my full-time career and family life, making the course accessible to those with high commitment levels."

 

She says she will be joining Matt in continuing their studies with the LIA’s Higher National Diploma (HND), which also focuses on Lighting Design and Technology. 

 

Other members of the first cohort of students have also passed with excellent grades and have elected to graduate in December.

 

The HNC and a HND in Lighting Design and Technology are the first formally academically recognised higher education qualifications in lighting within the UK and are delivered between the LIA Academy in Telford and the USW campus in Pontypridd recognising the state of the art facilities at both sites.

 

Modules delivered at the Academy in Telford are led by LIA’s established team of expert tutors, who have all gained ‘Recognised Teacher Status’ from USW.

 

Students can enrol to take the courses in either a full-time or part-time capacity, whether taking their first steps into lighting or aiming to strengthen and develop their existing career.

 

The qualifications cater for all abilities and offer a natural career pathway and has become a cornerstone in the development of the lighting community’s bright and exciting future. The next intake of HNC students is already enrolling for the course which starts in September 2019.
