Learning solutions that meet workforce needs

At NCFE, we believe that no learner should be left behind, which is why we’re so proud of our extensive adult learning offer.

We develop fundable training programmes with providers that will help to both upskill and reskill those looking for work, and support national and regional recovery plans.

One of the many ways we offer opportunities for learners is via the European Social Fund (ESF).

We’re happy to help providers understand the complex funding landscape, and we also provide hundreds of fundable qualifications and units for learner registration.

  • Business

  • Arts and crafts
  • Creative Media
  • Employability Skills

  • Occupational Studies
  • Personal and Social Development
