Our Higher Technical Qualifications:
To start an HTQ you need to be aged 18 or over.
You will also need Level 2 or GCSE grade C/4 or above in English and Maths as well as an appropriate level 3 qualification or substantial experience within health and/or social care.
You will be assessed in a variety of different ways including assignments, scenario-based tasks, witness testimonies from the workplace, group discussions, reflective accounts, and presentations.
After successful completion of your HTQ you will graduate with either an HNC or HND in Health Care Professions Support, from which you can on to further study or employment.
Assistant practitioners work in diverse healthcare environments, including the NHS and independent sector, for example, primary, secondary and tertiary care, diagnosis, therapeutic inpatient and outpatient departments, theatres, GP practices, community settings and rehabilitation services.
They support a wide range of practitioners, including registered nurses, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, diagnostic radiographers, physiotherapists, general practitioners, doctors of medicine and surgeons – and this is not an exhaustive list.
The skills offered as part of the Pearson BTEC Level 5 Higher National Diploma can provide graduates with the opportunity to work in many different areas of the health and social care sector.
