Join the Class of 2017

A major step forward for education in the lighting industry, this HNC provides the recognised learning that will retain and attract talent in our industry.

For this, its inaugural year the HNC will run as a part time course, across two years, cleverly designed and scheduled so that it can be completed while fully employed in the industry.

This first ever HNC in lighting being taught in the UK through the LIA and University of South Wales (USW), has been validated by the industry, with some the key players in lighting already enrolling students.
