Edexcel Level 5 BTEC HND Diploma in Business


Duration 24 Months

Edexcel 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.

As a nested qualification the Level-4 HNC is an embedded component of the HND. The Edexcel BTEC Level 5 HND in Business provides opportunities for learners to apply their knowledge and practical skills in the workplace.

The Edexcel BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Business has been jointly developed by UK employers and Edexcel and is designed for those who wish to develop real practical skills across a range of essential business and management areas. Alternatively, those already working in supervisory or junior management positions would benefit from these courses and gain practical skills and a formal management qualification. An Edexcel BTEC Higher Diploma is recognised as equivalent to the 2nd year of a University degree.
