Higher Technical Qualifications

What are Higher Technical Qualifications? 

We have introduced Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) to offer the latest industry relevant courses and widen student’s options when it comes to higher education. 

HTQs are new or existing level 4 and 5 qualifications such as higher national certificates (HNCs), higher national diplomas (HNDs) and foundation degrees. They are an alternative to apprenticeships or degrees and provide a more practical, skills-based path to a rewarding career.

They have been developed by awarding bodies in collaboration with employers so students can develop the skills that employers want. 

Approved courses show the HTQ quality mark logo.

Who are HTQs for?

HTQs are for students who are aged 18 and over, and looking to study a subject to prepare them for a specifically skilled job in a particular sector, such as business, IT, legal and accounts and finance. However, HTQs are also suitable for adults looking to retrain or upskill in their current job role.

They can also be used as a launchpad into further study or training.

How can HTQs help me in my career path?

Higher Technical Qualifications are an alternative to apprenticeships or degrees. They may suit individuals that want a more practical, employer-led study programme. 

HTQs offer a high-quality alternative to other popular routes into a career such as apprenticeships, traineeships or degrees, producing graduates who are ‘work ready’ with the skills employers are looking for. 

They can lead to employment within high-skilled, well-paid jobs in a range of sectors, giving you a head start in your chosen career.
