What are the benefits of delivering NCC Education programmes?

The qualifications offer:

-       Flexibility: Learners study towards a degree at their own pace and receive a certificate for their achievements at each stage. Centre’s can choose to offer full-time or part-time study to best meet the needs of learners.

-       Quality: NCC Education is recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) as an awarding body for British qualifications.

-       Value for money: NCC Education qualifications are an affordable option for learners and your centre has the ability to offer qualifications at a competitive price.

-       International learners: From start to finish our qualifications are tailored in every way to suit both UK and international learners to help them achieve and progress.

Strong progression routes: NCC Education works in partnership with a wide range of universities worldwide. We have strong relationships with over 50 universities across the UK, offering progression into a range of degree programmes.

What is a Centre Approval or Centre Accreditation visit?

As a new centre your site may require an inspection visit.  The purpose of this visit is to ensure that you have all the necessary facilities and systems in place to deliver NCC Education qualifications. Following receipt of your application to become a centre, NCC Education will contact you to confirm if your centre is required to have a visit and we will arrange this accordingly.
