These qualifications can also be supplemented by NCFE’s additionality qualifications contributing to a well-rounded programme for your learners.

UCAS Points

The progression options following completion of the Study Programme are endless; your learners can progress onto an Apprenticeship in their chosen vocational area, employment or higher education with our Level 3 substantial qualifications offering UCAS points.

Higher Level Studies

The qualification is designed for learners who are considering studying at a higher level and would like to develop their higher level study skills. It enables learners to understand their own strengths and weaknesses and identify areas for further development. The qualification is particularly relevant for those aged 16-18 who maybe considering going to university or onto other further studies. This qualification also attracts UCAS points.

NCFE’s additionality qualifications:

  • include awards and certificates that can sit alongside a learner’s 16-19 full-time programme
  • support learner retention and progression, promoting early success to improve confidence
  • can help to prepare for and support work experience placements, providing evidence of their learning
  • develop learners’ transferable life skills to improve confidence and help with their employment outcomes
  • support learners to gain the vital literacy and numeracy skills they need
  • help you to create a programme of learning bespoke to your learners (Ofsted has recommended this approach.)
