The scale of the challenge:
The IoT Team has worked collaboratively for the last 12 months to design a brand new and bespoke curriculum. We originally intended to make this qualification ‘exclusive’ to our centres, but we think it’s too good to keep for ourselves. As such any centre globally can adopt our new HN Digital Technologies qualification, but we will be the first to offer in Spring 2021 and South Central Institute of Technology, and learners will be the first certificated in HN Digital Technologies. The qualification is also currently under review as part of the reforms to Higher Education and soon we will receive feedback whether it’ll be granted a HTQ ‘Kite Mark’- again another first. Our qualification not only brings the best from industry, but really focusses on development of knowledge, skills (we have developed a Skills Framework with Skills Builder) and behaviours. With so many firsts on the near horizon, it’s a great time to get involved. Get in touch to start the conversation. We look forward to sharing our vision with you.
