The Edexcel BTEC Level 5 HND provides greater breadth and specialisation than the Level 4 HNC. The structure of the programme provides an innovative and creative curriculum, covering core areas such as the business environment, business communication and information, marketing and human resources – all fundamental to the success of business organisations.
What will I do?
The Edexcel BTEC Level 5 HND is made up of 16 units: eight mandatory and eight specialist units.
The mandatory units include:
- The business environment
- Managing financial resources and decisions
- Organisations and behaviour
- Marketing principles
Specialist units could include:
Business BTEC HNC Certificate Level 4 or a related HNC qualification.
You will also need to have a Level 2 qualification or above in English and Maths (e.g. GCSE or Functional Skills) and/or minimum IELTS score 6.
Where could it lead?
The BTEC HNC and HND qualifications are highly valued by employers and can lead to careers in business specialisms such as finance, human resources, management or marketing, as well as other business-related careers. The qualifications also offer a progression route to the professional qualifications offered by organisations like the Chartered Institute of Marketing, management accountants and personnel development.
A key progression path for Edexcel BTEC HNC and HND learners is to the second or third year of a degree or honours degree programme depending on the degree in question.
