Higher Technical Qualification – HTQ

What are HTQs?

HTQs are technical qualifications that employers have helped develop so you can get the right training and skills you need to succeed at work.

HTQs are an alternative to apprenticeships or degrees. They may suit you if you want a more practical, employer-led study programme.

You can study HTQs full time or part time. They are usually taught at colleges, universities or independent training providers.

Approved HTQs

Approved HTQs are new and existing level 4 and 5 qualifications approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.

Subjects available

More subjects will be added soon.

Starting a HTQ

To start a HTQ, you’ll need to be aged 18 or over and live in England.

You can apply for a HTQ while you’re still at school.

Tuition fees and funding
