SCL Education Group

Remote invigilation has allowed our learners to progress as needed. The service, support and guidance we’ve received from NCFE has been second to none. Pleasantly surprised at the ease of the experience. By following the guidance documents there is little that can go wrong. The ease of use of the system is one of the best things about NCFE’s remote invigilation solution. Not every learner is tech savvy but with the step-by-step guides, they are able to navigate it easily.

TSP Learn

Our learners had a good experience. The flexibility around learners sitting the exam in their own time worked very well. Not being restricted by having a certain number of time slots to book learners into was helpful. The remote invigilation support team was very communicative and helpful. Any issues that we experienced were responded to and resolved quickly. We chose to work with NCFE due to the useful online resources and good communication.

Our experience of remote invigilation with NCFE has been fantastic and we’re very happy. Support from the offset and throughout was great, as well as really good response turnarounds. The communication from NCFE is fantastic. We really liked the nice, simple guidance that was easy for both learners and staff to follow. We especially like the flexibility of NCFE’s remote invigilation solution. Using remote invigilation enabled us to roll out exams to learners during national lockdown. We are incredibly pleased with the system and are looking forward to using this system going forward.
