    Loughborough University
    is at the heart of England in the northern most part of the county of Leicestershire and being centrally placed is well served by road, rail and air.  Thanks to the vision of its founding father, Dr Herbert Schofield, Loughborough University has developed into one of the country’s leading universities, with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research, strong links with business and industry and unrivalled sporting achievement. A public research university, it has been a university since 1966, but the institution dates back to 1909, when the then Loughborough Technical Institute began with a focus on skills and knowledge which would be directly applicable in the wider world. The combination of world class research, enterprising outlook, unparalleled sporting achievement and excellent student experience gives rise to something that is truly special and distinctive among the UK’s universities. At Loughborough we work towards achieving our ten-year vision through four central themes – Investing in our staff, Educating for success, Growing capacity and influence, and Raising standards and aspirations – with research, teaching, enterprise and sport embedded in each.

Staff undertake a balanced programme of work and training to develop technical and non-technical skills. Sponsorship is available to gain Accredited/Chartered status and take further qualifications.
