Why do learners choose us? There are many different reasons why learners come to us but most important of all is because we care. We care about the experience our learners have, we care about their qualification being recognised and relevant, and we care about the impact those learners will have on their workplaces once they qualify. 

With 170 years’ experience in designing and delivering qualifications, we have developed a great passion for the qualifications we create, and this is coupled with a keen interest in the people who take our qualifications. We ensure our training providers and colleges offer the best tuition and learner support. Not only that but we work with the world’s best known and loved brands and are trusted to create training and learning programs for their staff. Organisations like Rolls Royce, the NHS and Save The Children.

Our qualifications give learners independent verification that they have undergone a rigorous learning programme, and that is why we are trusted by employers and universities globally.

Progression to University

Many learners who study our qualifications want to go on to university.  Our regulated qualifications carry academic credits that are recognised by universities around the world, so you can gain your qualification and progress to a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or MBA.

Most university courses expect a certain level of study to have been achieved and a particular number of credits.  Typically, a Level 5 NCFE qualification enables learners to enter the final year of a Bachelor’s degree, and achievement of an NCFE Level 6 qualification will allow you join the final year of a Bachelor’s or top-up to an MBA.

Studying with us is cost effective in both time and money, and will allow you to specialise in your area of interest while receiving the support from your training provider or college.
