The students at SWISS MODE International Fashion Design School will study for BTEC Higher National qualifications in Art and Design. The program is divided unto two levels: Level 4 HNC (year 1) and Level 5 HND (year 2). Thus, the whole program is planned for two academic years.

What is BTEC?

BTEC's one of the world’s most recognized applied learning brands, engaging students in practical, interpersonal and thinking skills, for more than thirty years.

BTECs are work-related qualifications for students taking their first steps into employment, or for those already in employment and seeking career development opportunities. BTECs provide progression into the workplace either directly or via study at university and are also designed to meet employer’s needs. Therefore, BTEC Higher National qualifications delivered at SWISS MODE School are widely recognized by industry and higher education as the principal vocational qualification at Levels 4 and 5.

BTEC Higher Nationals in Art and Design are designed to help students secure the knowledge skills and behaviors needed to succeed in the workplace. They represent the latest in professional standards and provide opportunities for students to develop behaviors for work.

BTEC Higher National qualifications in Art and Design are aimed at students wanting to continue their education through applied learning. Higher Nationals provide a wide-ranging study of the Art and Design sector and are designed for students who wish to pursue or advance their career in Art and Design. In addition to the knowledge, understanding and skills that underpin the study of the Art and Design sector, BTEC Higher Nationals in Art and Design give students experience of the breadth and depth of the sector that will prepare them for further study or training.

Level 4 BTEC Higher National Certificate in Art and Design offers students a broad introduction to the subject area via a mandatory core of learning, as well as units within general ‘pathways’, while allowing for the acquisition of skills and experience through the selection of a further (Level 4) unit across a range of occupational sectors. This effectively builds underpinning core skills, with general specialization; preparing the student for further specialization at Level 5. Students will gain a wide range of sector knowledge tied to practical skills gained in research, self- study, directed study and workplace scenarios.

Level 5 BTEC Higher National Diploma in Art and Design offers students ‘specialist pathways’ designed to support progression into relevant occupational areas or on to degree-level study. These pathways are linked to Professional Body standards and can provide professional status and progression to direct employment.
