Third Cycle for Higher Technical Qualifications Announced

The application window for the third cycle of Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs) approvals process has now opened. The government announced plans in 2020 to drive up the quality of level 4 and 5 qualifications and make it far easier for employers and learners to identify which training programmes meet their skills needs. A key way of doing this will be through HTQs. Approved qualifications will be set apart from other qualifications by a government backed quality mark. More information about the third cycle is here.
