Industry engagement

Industry is placed at the heart of Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications. Throughout qualification development and validation, 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.

We are proud to have developed our Pearson BTEC Higher National in Horticulture with experts from organisations, including: Landex, Andersplus, Shropshire Country Council, the National Farmers Union, the Institution of Agricultural Secretaries and Administrators and Wrexham County Council. The representatives are able to help design our qualifications to equip learners with skills required by industry across the world.

Industry support and recognition

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.

The Royal Horticultural Society has made a formal statement of support for these qualfications. You can find their statement below.
