Btec diplomas: national vs foundation

Hello, what’s the difference between a BTEC national diploma and a BETC foundation diploma? Is one better than the other?
Can you link to the qualifications on the Pearson website (or on the website of the college you’re looking at)?
There’s more than one BTEC Foundation Diploma.

The foundation diploma (worth 1.5 a levels) is achieved after 1 year of taking the extended diploma for applied science (worth 3 a levels once completed) whereas the national diploma (worth 2 a levels) is similar to the extended course but covers less units
