BTEC Higher Nationals Hospitality and Catering sector
Industry is at the heart of Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications. Throughout the development and validation stages, we work with industry experts 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.
