Higher National Certificates (HNCs) / Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) can improve your career prospects

Higher National Certificates (HNCs) / Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) are work-related higher education qualifications that are highly valued by employers. HNCs/HTQs focus on 'learning by doing' and give you skills that are specific to your job.

An HNC/HTQ qualification related to the industry you work in will improve your professional status and count towards membership of professional bodies and other employer organisations.

Studying an HNC/HTQ is also perfect if you are progressing from college as you’ll learn the skills needed to move into your chosen career. An HNC/HTQ is a Level 4 qualification and is equivalent to one year of higher education study.

HNCs/HTQs are assessed through assignments, projects, and practical tasks that you complete throughout the course. If you complete an HNC/HTQ, the grades in each subject unit are shown as pass, merit or distinction.

I have recently been appointed as Contracts Manager with Bow Construction and wanted to further my knowledge. There are good facilities here and it feels very comfortable in the new HE Centre. I’m really enjoying the design element and learning about new innovations that are being used in construction. After I’ve completed the HNC I would like to go on to Wolverhampton University.

Previous Institution: Shrewsbury Academy

I wanted a complete change in career and had always considered becoming an architect. When I came to an SCG Open Evening, tutors suggested the route of Higher Education in Construction. It is a great hands-on course and I especially enjoyed learning about CAD, as this is a skill I need to become an architect.
