Home Nations and International Schools
Schools outside of England can offer NCFE qualifications but you should first check whether these are approved by the relevant regulator in your country. We recommend that you confirm this with them directly. Learn more about how to become an International Centre with NCFE
Maths and English
Whether your pupils need focus on particular aspects of maths and English with our bitesize qualifications or move on to study our qualifications, you can be sure that you’ll be supported with some amazing tools and resources and also through our partner Skills Forward.
This is a free to use website of curated maths and English resources. We’ve done all the legwork for you so that you can simply search by topic, level, and cost to find resources we think are some of the best on the internet. If you like what we link to, then you can use the site to invite your pupils to use the same resource. You can also ask your pupils to take a confidence test before and after they’ve used the resource so that you can track distance travelled.
Mental health issues are a key focus in schools, with exam stress being recognised as a contributing factor. In 2015-16, ChildLine delivered over 4000 counselling sessions on exam stress to school pupils. At NCFE, we are committed to developing solutions with pupils in mind. GoCalm is a desktop-based app which has been created to directly support pupils cope with the mental pressure of exams; by teaching them to increase their mental focus abilities.
