Partner Events


Start: 22 September 2022 10:30AM

End: 20 September 2022 12PM


This event is organised by Skills Labs in partnership with further education colleges across the South Central region.

The South East is home to over 450 space-related companies, employing over 10,000 people. Industrial capabilities cover the full range of activities across space manufacturing, space operations, space applications and ancillary services resulting in a thriving community making significant contributions to the UK economy.

The future of the UK space sector is bright but we need to inspire and train the next-generation of space technologists, scientists and engineers to ensure industry has access to the very best talent. With over 40% of the current workforce due to retire by 2030 we need to urgently invest in training and development to ensure we can keep pace with the sector’s growing needs. Together, employers and colleges can create an industry-ready workforce to secure the future of our sector.

Join this event to hear presentations from leading local space businesses. There will be opportunity to network and learn more about skills, and benefit from a first hand experience of the training providers educational space offer.
