Pearson Education is the UK’s largest awarding body offering academic and vocational qualifications that are globally recognised and benchmarked.  Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications are designated higher education qualifications in the UK.  They are aligned to the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Subject Benchmark Statements.

BTEC Professional qualifications are qualifications at Level 4 to Level 8 that are designed to provide professional work-related qualifications in a range of sectors. They give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need to prepare for employment. The qualifications also provide career development opportunities for those already in work. Consequently, they provide a course of study for full-time or part-time learners in schools, colleges and training centres.

On successful completion of a BTEC Professional qualification, learners can progress to or within employment and/or continue their study in the same or related vocational area.
