E-LEARNING and DISTANCE LEARNING Pearson Edexcel have introduced a fully interactive e-learning solution for the core units of the HNC in Business. This includes progress tests with instant feedback, discussion forums to enable you to communicate with other HNC in Business learners at ETC, an interactive e-book, learning materials, PowerPoint slides, and video content. The specialist units have been designed by ETC. These include more interaction with tutors via  webinars, e-mails and Skype. The learning resources can be accessed via a dedicated login to our virtual learning environment (Moodle). This is a combination of distance learning and e-learning. Pearson Edexcel have not designed a full e-learning solution for any of the specialist units. If they do so, ETC will make these available to learners.
BLENDED LEARNING The HNC in Business by blended learning is a combination of e-learning, distance learning and classroom delivery. Students can learn using the e-learning and distance learning resources and attend small group classroom sessions to consolidate their learning, meet tutors face-to-face and receive lectures, seminars and tutorials. The classroom sessions will be arranged by mutual agreement at a time that is convenient to group of students.
ASSESSMENT (distance learning) This programme will be assessed using written assignments, reports and preparation of presentations and handouts for an intended audience. Students will also have the option to deliver and record their oral presentation as an MP3 or wav file and submit it to their tutor for assessment and feedback. Alternatively, if students are within commutable distance of ETC’s premises, they can arrange to deliver the presentation to their tutor or to their tutor and a small group of students. This ensures full flexibility of delivery options to students.
ASSESSMENT (blended learning only) The programme will be assessed using written assignments, reports, role play and live presentations to a tutor and small group of students. Students also have the option of video or audio recording their presentation for discussion and feedback from their tutor online, via telephone, Skype or face-to-face. The combination of e- learning, distance learning and classroom instruction should ensure maximum flexibility for students and allow them to study at their own pace, at a time that suits them, while not missing out on the ‘student experience’ of meeting other students and their tutor in a classroom setting.

Duration: Flexible (normally 9 - 18 months) OVERVIEW The programme is vocationally focused, using a wide range of business case studies and practical examples. It is well established and recognised across the UK by universities and employers. The HNC in Business programme is at QCF level 4, which is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree. Successful completion of the HNC in Business could provide direct entry to the second year of a related undergraduate degree programme at some UK universities. The entry criteria can vary between universities; it is therefore recommended that you visit university websites or contact their admissions department to confirm their entry requirements. Alternatively, successful completion of the HNC in Business can lead to progression onto the HND in Business at ETC.
