We are happy to announce that the specification for new BTEC Higher National (HN) Qualification in Engineering (2017) RQF is now available.

The qualification has been developed in conjunction with key stakeholders, such as higher education institutions, employers, and professional organisations, to provide your students with the most relevant content addressing the skills gap faced by local employers and ensuring progression opportunities both professionally and academically.

For the new RQF qualifications, we have introduced a few new processes to ensure students, parents and centres will be confident in the quality and standards of these qualifications.

Find out more about new RQF qualifications.

If you would like to offer one of these qualifications for the first time or have any other queries, please contact us at

Pearson has recently launched a new bespoke BTEC Higher National qualification development and validation service to enable you to customise your HN provision to the needs of employers or universities in your area.

Depending on individual needs, and subject to development approval, you could commission locally-devised units to be accredited in any of the new HNs in:

  • Business
  • General Engineering
  • Nuclear Engineering
  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Construction
  • Computing
  • Art and Design

You can use existing units from these HNs, combined with your own locally-devised units, to create a different HN title or commission an HN in a completely new subject area.
