NCFE features in The Sunday Times Top 100 

We’re thrilled to announce that NCFE has reached number 41 in this year’s list of The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For. Our colleagues were asked to comment on eight distinct areas: Leadership, My Company, Personal Growth, My Manager, My Team, Giving Something Back, Fair Deal and Wellbeing – all of which are major drivers of colleague engagement. In addition to reaching 41 in the list, we also received a special recognition award to celebrate reaching the Top 100 for ten years and we have placed in the 40 Best Companies to work for in the North East.

Our people are undoubtedly our strongest asset and we believe that happy and engaged colleagues, who believe in our core purpose as an organisation, can only mean good things for our learners. Learners are at the heart of everything we do and are our key driver to continuing to make improvements. Every day we work hard to provide excellent service and support for them and our centres.

It’s important to us to keep evolving and ensuring that we’re at the forefront of service and engagement in our sector. Our commitment to service has always been something we’ve been passionate about and we strive to exceed your expectations. We think our approach makes us different and easy to do business with and our Customer Support team is there to help via webchat, email or phone. We also make sure that our NCFE and CACHE websites are up to date with the latest information and QualHub houses all of our qualifications, resources and events for you to access whenever you need.

We’re really proud to be able to share our good news with you but know that it doesn’t stop there. We’re always looking to improve and rely on your feedback to ensure that we’re providing the right products and services for you. We carry out a number of surveys and focus groups throughout the year so please take part when you can. Alternatively you can get in touch with us through the usual channels to give us your thoughts.

When talking about nutrition I am not necessarily talking about weight loss. Instead, I am talking about the increasing evidence that good nutrition improves mood and mental well-being.
