Do you struggle to get staff with the right skills?
Whilst you will have heard of HNCs and HNDs, are you really aware of the skills a contemporary HN graduate can bring to your organisation?
There are two types, Higher National Certificates (HNCs) at SCQF Level 7 and Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) at SCQF Level 8.
They are developed by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) in partnership with Scottish colleges, universities, industry and commerce.
They focus on different occupational areas and prepare people with the knowledge and some experience to work in these areas.
There are 249 HN Courses covering subject areas from the more traditional - accounting, business administration, childcare, computing, engineering, hospitality – to the newer – creative industries, paralegal, sports and leisure.
The qualifications meet the applicable National Occupational Standards. In many areas, HN graduates can then gain entry to relevant industry bodies.
HN qualification can also work for staff development. Further information is available from your nearest college or from Leardirect Scotland for business.
