To make sure that our qualifications are providing the most relevant career-related content, industry expertise is placed at the heart of BTEC Higher National qualifications. Throughout qualification design, development and validation, we work with employers, HE and FE experts and students to structure our qualifications to meet industry standards.
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.
