We support the full pipeline of training for the biosciences sector.

We offer a diverse range of routes to a career in the bioindustries, through our Life Science Manufacturing Academy for school leavers, Teesside University apprenticeships, undergraduate and postgraduate courses and continuing professional development.

[The NHC’s] professors and leading academics collaborated with our subject matter experts to create a course with a blend of knowledge transfer and hands-on experiential learning at lab scale. The result is a 2-week intensive Biomanufacturing Manufacturing Skills course designed to develop new and existing staff, ensuring that they are all up-skilled to the same high standards required by our business. The key success factor was being able to do this far faster than could be achieved internally.

Life sciences manufacturing academy

We are committed to developing the next generation of scientists, creating a pipeline of industry-ready employees for our region's organisations. The Life Sciences Manufacturing Academy (LSMA) is a partnership between the NHC and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) to promote life science manufacturing to school leavers as a potential career.

After the initial two cohorts, the LSMA will be expanding to include other colleges and industry partners. If you would like to get involved please contact Jen Vanderhoven.
