College Launches New Higher Technical Qualifications

1st Jul 2024

We are proud to announce the launch of Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) in Engineering, Computing, and Construction Management. From this September, these innovative courses will offer exceptional opportunities to gain industry-relevant skills and knowledge, whether as a student or as an apprentice.

These HTQs, awarded the prestigious Quality Mark, build on traditional Higher National Certificates (HNCs) with updated and refreshed content to reflect the latest industry practices. The courses are designed to be flexible, allowing learners to pursue them as standalone qualifications or as part of comprehensive higher apprenticeship programmes, positioning them at the forefront of their chosen careers.

    Recognised for its commitment to excellence, Abingdon & Witney College is renowned for its outstanding apprenticeship programmes as graded by Ofsted. This launch underscores the College’s dedication to providing high-quality education and training that meets the evolving demands of the job market.

    Principal Jacqui Canton expressed her enthusiasm, saying:

    "We are excited to offer these dynamic HTQs and higher apprenticeship programmes which are tailored to meet the needs of modern industries. By combining theoretical knowledge with practical skills, our students and apprentices will be well-equipped to excel in their careers and contribute to the economic development of Oxfordshire and beyond."
