Aviation Skills Partnership has announced a new university partner in developing degree programmes from its newly announced framework - University of South Wales. As the largest university in Wales and with a proud heritage of innovative aerospace and aviation engineering programmes, ASP's new partner will provide a powerful new force in the field of work-based and practice-based degree programmes for the industry.

ASP's new framework has been developed as a progression from its pioneering work on a similar, highly successful scheme for professional pilots. It has been developed in close collaboration with the industry and the training organisations, airlines, operators and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organisations.

The first students are expected to enrol on the scheme from September 2016.
