Space Science Technology qualification lifts off at Destination Space event

Space was high on the agenda yesterday as the astronaut Tim Peake joined the International Space Station in orbit. To help celebrate this, CCEA showcased the Level 2 QCF Space Science Technology qualification at the Destination Space event held in W5.

The Space Science Technology qualification is designed to appeal to learners that have an interest in how space science technologies are impacting our daily lives while enabling us to explore beyond planet earth.

Learners can study the night sky, considering why distant light is so appealing to mankind. They can explore the history of space exploration, and enter the new dimension of the ‘space race’, where commercial companies compete to offer their services and products in space science technologies.

If you are interested in teaching this qualification or want to find out more please visit our Space Science Technology microsite or contact Eleanore Thomas on (028) 9026 1200 extension 2209, email ethomas@ccea.org.uk or Joan Jennings on (028) 9026 1439, email jjennings@ccea.org.uk.
