New ‘bite-size’ courses taught at undergraduate-level are being launched at West London Institute of Technology (WLIoT).
The ‘HN Flex’ courses are individual units drawn from the full BTEC HNC courses which are also taught at WLIoT in Construction, Digital Technology, and Engineering subjects.
The first HN Flex course is a seven week Level 4 course taught on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with some Saturdays, starting May 4 with Construction Practice and Management.
The aim of this Flex unit is to develop and provide students with a holistic understanding of construction practice and management processes. Candidates will normally be in more senior roles and have achieved a qualification at Level 3 (A level or equivalent or above).
HN Flex units can help improve staff work efficiencies as well as being used to meet employer training requirements.
HNCs often lead on to HND qualifications, which in turn can lead to a final year ‘top up’ degree which is popular with students at this level.
The courses are currently being taught remotely by Uxbridge College and Harrow College, part of the merged college group HCUC which is the lead partner in WLIoT.
