Course summary

Overview

Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications are designed to develop practical skills alongside specialist knowledge and understanding of the subject area. These qualifications have been well respected and recognised by employers and higher education institutions. The Higher National Diploma (HND) is a Level 5 qualification which is equivalent to the second year of the Bachelor Degree. HND qualifications can be studied by those in employment for professional development to enhance their career prospects or HNC students can use this as an alternative path to gain higher education locally at lower cost.

The BTEC Higher National in Business provides opportunities for learners to apply their knowledge and skills in the workplace. Students will have the opportunity to do this through any employment experience they may hold. This course is also available to mature learners who may wish to enter a specialist area of employment within Business. This course aims to develop a sound understanding of the major theoretical and practical principles associated with working in business. A significant focus is placed on the skills required for effective communication, self-development and career progression. If you are looking to pursue a career in business or you are currently employed in a business environment and wish to combine work with study to develop your skills and knowledge to enhance your career prospects then this course may be for you. It will draw on a range of industry links and local employers to provide you with extensive business experience.

On successful completion of this course you can continue with employment or use the HND as an entry to apply for other Higher Education qualifications e.g. Bachelor Degree, Top-up Degree. You can apply to university to complete a degree in a related subject; entry to the degree may be at Year 3 dependent upon the university and degree programme. This qualification can also be used to support a job application within a related profession.
