HN Online allows you to deliver BTEC Higher Nationals using a blended learning model. It gives you the flexibility to save time and resources by giving your students the ability to learn part of the curriculum outside of the classroom.

HN Online was developed to facilitate blended delivery of BTEC Higher National qualifications, covering 30 guided learning hours of critical course content in each unit. HN Online is currently available for HNs in Business with Engineering coming in September 2020.

HN Online will cover four units for BTEC Higher Nationals in Engineering, which are mandatory and common across the pathways:

  • Engineering Design
  • Engineering Maths
  • Engineering Science, and
  • Managing a Professional Engineering Project.

The learning materials included in HN Online allow your students to engage with critical course content, enabling you to focus on high value teaching and assignment support.

Students at Sunderland College attend in-class sessions every three weeks and spend the rest of their time studying online, with an option for face-to-face meetings with the tutor every week. 

Co-created with educators and industry alike

We developed HN Online for the HNs in Engineering as they are a very popular and versatile qualifications, highly recognised by the industry. This presented an opportunity for us to co-create with both centres and employers to develop engaging and informative content for HN Online. 

Some centres with experience delivering Higher Nationals, such as Northern Regional College, are working closely with us to develop and review the HN Online content and its application within blended learning context. 

In order to make the content relevant to the needs of industry, we're also seeking out advice from the engineering sector. Our recent Skills Forum brought together representatives from organisations such as Airbus, Siemens and Halliburton to gain their perspective and inform the content development for HN Online.
