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.  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’re able to navigate it easily.

Runway Training 

Our experience of remote invigilation with NCFE has been fantastic and we’re very happy. Support throughout was great, as well as a really good response turnaround. We really liked the simple guidance that was easy for both learners and staff to follow. We especially like the flexibility of NCFE’s remote invigilation solution. We’re incredibly pleased with the system and are looking forward to using this going forward.

TSP Learn 

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. We chose to work with NCFE due to the useful online resources and good communication.
