Due to the replacement of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) by the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), references to the QCF and to its predecessor, the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) have been removed from this specification. In addition, Pearson has assigned Total Qualification Time (TQT) in hours to this qualification; this is covered in the section entitled ‘Programme design and delivery’ of this specification.

Pearson BTEC Level 4 HNC Diploma in Travel and Tourism Management Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Travel and Tourism Management

The BTEC HNCs (Higher National Certificates) are at level 4 and are a minimum of 120 credits in size. They have been nested within the structures of the BTEC HNDs (Higher National Diplomas).

BTEC HNDs are level 5 qualifications. They are a minimum of 240 credits in size.

The qualifications are Intermediate level qualifications on the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ). Progression to BTEC Higher Nationals continues to be from level 3 qualifications. Progression from BTEC Higher Nationals will normally be to qualifications at level 6. Learners’ progression routes do not necessarily involve qualifications at every level.

As a nested qualification the HNC is an embedded component of the HND. However, it can be taken as a stand-alone qualification.

If a learner enrols for an HNC they would be eligible to gain a grade for the HNC. If they then move onto an HND, the learner is graded on their HND performance. The grade for the HND will include units from the previously achieved HNC.

If a learner opts to take an HND from the start, then on successful completion of the HND they will receive one grade for the HND achievement only.

If a learner opts to take an HND from the start but later chooses to revert to an HNC programme, then on successful completion of the HNC they will receive a grade for the HNC achievement only.
