HIGHER TECHNICAL QUALIFICATION


HTQs are an alternative to apprenticeships or degrees. They may suit you if you want a more practical, employer-led study programme.

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

With an HTQ, students study while they have a job. They gain valuable workplace experience while increasing their career prospects. Students study in their own time for 10 hours each week with two hours of recorded or live lessons. It’s completely flexible.
