Course summary

Pearson’s BTEC Higher Nationals are designed to provide a specialist vocational programme, linked to professional body requirements and National Occupational Standards where appropriate. They offer a strong, sector-related emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding. The qualifications provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their sector and their national recognition by employers allows direct progression to employment.


The programme is comprised of seven separate units of study. Each unit has a value of 15 credits with the exception of the Research Project which has a value of 30 credits. You must achieve a minimum of 120 credits at level 5 (of which at least 65 must be at level 4) on your programme of learning to be awarded a Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND. The units are: Research Project Professional Engineering Management Advanced Mechanical Principles Further Mathematics Manufacturing Systems Engineering Lean Manufacturing Virtual Engineering

Assessment method

Pearson BTEC Higher Nationals are assessed using a combination of internally assessed centre-devised internal assignments (which are set and marked by centres) and internally assessed Pearson set assignments (which are set by Pearson and marked by centres). Pearson set assignments are mandatory and target industry-specific skills. The number and value of these units are dependent on qualification size.
