Through one of our specialist training courses leading to an industry-recognised Professional Certificate or Diploma, the HEA delivers the qualifications, skills and knowledge demanded by the highways industry which are in short supply today.

The HEA aims to train a dedicated workforce with the specialist skills and expertise the highways industry needs to build the UK’s road network.

The HEA has five key objectives:

  • To create and signpost opportunities for new entrants in the sector by giving clear unambiguous advice on relevant training and Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
  • To encourage new entrants into the highway engineering sector particularly from school leavers, graduates, allied trades, complementary professions and groups currently under represented, including women
  • To support existing highway professionals in career development via training and CPD with direct relevance to professional registration
  • To commission and create new educational and training courses specifically aimed at highway engineers
  • To raise the profile of highway engineers and get their career, skills and wider professional recognised in its own right and as one with equal status to complementary and contiguous professions such as civil engineering, transport planning, architecture, etc
