We work with industry post-validation to further recognise our qualifications as high quality and career-focused; whether that be in the form of upskilling their own workforce with our qualifications or simply formally accepting the qualification as a part of the application process.

We are proud to have developed our Pearson BTEC Higher National in Construction with experts from large, global organisations, including: Vinci Construction UK, Cundall Engineering, Laing O’Rourke, Balfour Beatty, the Royal Academy of Engineering, Cundall Engineering, the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB). The representatives are able to help design our qualifications to equip learners with skills required by industry across the world.

The Construction Industry Training Board supported the qualification’s registration to Ofqual.

For years, employers have valued the skills and knowledge that BTEC Higher National students bring to the world of work. That is why students choose to study our programmes.

Specific companies and industry bodies that have made formal statements of support and/or actively hire BTEC Higher National students include: VinciBAMCIOBCITB and ICE
