Employers value the skills and knowledge that BTEC Higher National students bring to the workplace, and many organisations recognise our qualifications. Information about the formal recognition and agreements that we have in place can be found below.

In addition, Amazon Web Services provided resources to support the teaching and learning of our Cloud Computing Higher Nationals. Some of these materials may also be relevant to the Computing Higher National qualification. Resources are accessible through HN Global.

Throughout qualification development and validation, working with industry experts helps to structure our qualifications to meet industry standards. This ensures that students leave with the required expertise and employability skills as identified by business and industry, and with the flexibility to go straight into employment or to continue to a degree.
