Proposals launched to boost the quality and uptake of Higher Technical Qualifications

Opaque and misunderstood Level 4 and 5 qualifications are being renamed and revamped by Education Secretary Damian Hinds.

Level 4 and 5 qualifications – lesser known qualifications that sit between A Level (Level 3) and degrees (Level 6), such as CertHE, DipHE and foundation degrees – will be rebadged as Higher Technical Qualifications and quality approved, in a drive to attract more students to study them.
