The Lighting Industry Academy is holding its Open Day on Tuesday, 3 July at the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) in Telford and invites all those interested in finding educational opportunities for working in and developing their careers in lighting.

The Academy Open Day is being promoted as an opportunity for prospective students to find out what courses are available and seek guidance from the industry experts from all areas of lighting, who are also the tutors at the Academy. The attendees will be able to see first-hand, where and what they will learn, and explore the learning options for a career in the lighting Industry.

Opened in September 2016, the Academy was developed to create a hub for high-quality learning for the lighting community, and since has helped individuals and companies gain knowledge and develop the up-to-date skills required for lighting today.

The Open Day will also be an opportunity for progressive businesses in the lighting industry to find out how the Academy has progressed since opening and what it can offer to the lighting community in education, training and personnel development.

Chief Executive of the LIA, Steve Davies commenting about the need for education in the lighting industry and the Academy’s role in it said:

“The lighting industry is changing as new technologies, lifestyle changes and government initiatives are creating fantastic new opportunities for people working and looking to come into the industry.

“The Lighting Industry Academy continues to invest in the learning tools required to maximise these and future opportunities.”

With a range of courses covering lighting application, design, software, legislation, energy efficiency etc., the Academy offers a wide choice of unique learning opportunities.

Offered at a level that suits a learner’s experience and knowledge, the courses at the Academy range from introductory, certificate, advanced certificate and all the way up to Higher National Certificate and Diploma (HNC and HND) in Lighting Design and Technology (in partnership with the University of South Wales), which are the first qualifications in lighting at this level in the UK.
