NCFE is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, who are: The Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, the Welsh Government, and the Council for Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.
NCFE accreditation gives assurance that the content of a training course is of a high standard and meets the rigorous requirements of a national awarding organisation.
NCFE accreditation also gives formal recognition to courses which result in the award of a certificate of achievement but does not qualify you for a nationally recognised qualification. Further information about Ofqual’s Qualification & Credit Framework level descriptors can be found at http://www.ofqual.gov.uk/popups/explaining-qualifications/
NCFE are one of the largest awarding bodies in the UK. Over 340,000 thousand students were awarded certification by NCFE last year through over 2,000 colleges and training providers nationally. With a heritage stretching back over 150 years, NCFE offer students the opportunity to gain a fully recognised qualification suitable for further employment or higher education.
