Studying Horology, 1940s England

To get right to it, I have a character - living in England during the 1940s - with the title of Horologist. I've found a few scattered university courses in Horology, but all of these offered a BTEC qualification, which I don't suppose was by any means around at the time. 
What would he have studied in order to gain such a title? More specifically, how might he have managed to get a job, in Horology, in a Museum?
