Skills and Knowledge Developed:

Pearson BTEC Higher Nationals in Business have been developed to focus on:

● providing education and training for a range of careers in business such as management, administration, personnel, marketing, accounting, and law

● providing a general qualification which allows flexibility of study to meet local or specialist needs

● providing specialist options which meet the needs of the major functions in business and allow specialisation with career progression and professional recognition in mind

Special Features: Pearson BTEC Higher Nationals are designed to provide a specialist vocational programme, linked to professional body requirements and National Occupational Standards where appropriate. They offer a strong, sector-related emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding. The qualifications provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their sector and their national recognition by employers allows direct progression to employment.

Please note: this course will only run when it has a sufficient number of applicants.

Progression:

Progression to degree

The BTEC Higher National is a strong foundation for learners continuing to university to complete a degree. The level of independent research and critical thinking as well as the assessment methodology helps to prepare learners for university.

Although the Certificate is broadly equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree, and the Diploma is broadly equivalent to the second year of this degree, the entry point for a Higher National learner to a degree is at the discretion of the higher education institution. However, there is a role that the college or department may play in establishing clearer progression routes for BTEC Higher National learners.

Progression to international degrees

BTEC Higher Nationals are well recognised internationally – the qualifications are currently delivered in 65 different countries. As with progression to degrees offered by local institutions, the entry point for a learner is at the discretion of the international higher education centre.

Progression to employment

The BTEC Higher National in Business is a vocational qualification and so provides learners with a range of skills and knowledge that can be readily applied in the workplace.
