Following the revalidation of BTEC Higher Nationals in Business, we have updated the core textbook to reflect the new specification. The new e-textbook is designed as a supplementary resource to aid teaching and learning, in addition to other suggested resources and reading lists that are published on HN Global.

We made updates to the unit content in response to feedback from our centres, students and employers collected during the revalidation process. The changes ensure that units remain current, valid and support employer needs for specific skills sets. We also added content to unit 2, and unit 4 to meet new learning outcomes in relation to media planning, leadership, and motivation.
