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 Healthcare Practice for England with experts from organisations, including: The Royal College of Nursing, Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, Health Education England, Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust, Independence Matters and the North West London NHS Trust Healthcare Support Workers Forum. The representatives are able to help design our qualifications to equip learners with skills required by industry across the world.

Newcastle & Stratford Colleges Group and City & Islington College supported the qualification’s registration to Ofqual.
