What is a HTQ?

Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) are specialized training programs developed by awarding bodies in collaboration with employers and businesses. These programs are designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to advance in their chosen field. HTQs are available at Level 4 and Level 5, which include Foundation Degrees and HNDs.

HTQs are ideal for individuals who are 18 years or older and are looking to retrain or upskill. These programs are designed to provide students with the knowledge and practical experience required to excel in their chosen field. HTQs are perfect for those who prefer a more practical approach to learning and are excited about studying an employer-led course. Additionally, HTQs are a great option for those who are interested in progressing to further study or training
