Start your path to career success with a Higher National Diploma (HND) at Regent College. The Edexcel BTEC HND is designed to provide specialist work-related qualifications appropriate to the skills needs of a range of sectors at RQF levels 4 and 5. They have been developed to provide the required knowledge, understanding and skills in a sector context, necessary to prepare the learners for employment, academic career progression and/or to provide career development opportunities for those already in work.
