Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) provide an exciting new opportunity for students studying at UC Sheffield.
Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) are new or existing qualifications at Levels 4 and 5 that offer students a route into qualified technical pathways and highly-skilled, rewarding careers.
These qualifications have been developed in collaboration with businesses and employers, and approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education as meeting the occupational standards in the relevant industry sectors.
The skills that you will learn and the knowledge that you will acquire from an HTQ will be the ones that are required by employers in the sector you are training in, both now and in the future.
When you graduate from an HTQ, you will be ready to enter employment as a high-skilled, and sought after individual.
