Decide which Accreditation Service is for you.
Customised Award - If you're interested in gaining accreditation for 1 or 2 of your own courses.

Our specialised team will help you design and develop your own courses with our collaborative approach, by providing expert feedback within 15 working days, about how you can enhance your course into a specification that has measurable learning outcomes and assessment criteria; and has been benchmarked against the national framework to reach awarding organisation standards
Gather your learners’ details and register their names with NCFE. This can be done via the Portal. If you don’t have access to the Portal, please contact your Customer Support Assistant.
Register your learners as soon as possible after enrolment to make sure you receive up to date information and plenty of support from NCFE.
Customised Award – Once you’ve registered your learners you’ll be allocated an External Verifier. You’ll receive 2 visits per year free of charge, but can request more for an additional fee. The External Verifier will verify your learners portfolios and provide you with the support and guidance you need.
IIQ – You’ll be allocated a Quality Verifier and will receive 2 monitoring visits per year, free of charge. The Quality Verifier’s main role is to approve and support centres applying for and achieving the IIQ Licence, and to ensure that standards are maintained across all licensed centres.
Certificates are issued after successful completion of all necessary components for the course.
You will need to submit your certificate claim form to claim your certificates, which we’ll issue within one working day.
