Study programmes

Create well-rounded, confident learners by putting their needs at the heart of your curriculum planning.  

Study programmes offer learning that’s tailored to your learners’ goals, alongside work experience, to help them succeed in the real world. Our courses meet the Department for Education’s (DfE) requirements and cover various sectors, so you can create a programme that meets the current and future needs of the workforce.   

What does a study programme include? 

A study programme is made up of:  

  • Core aim – A substantial level 2 or 3 qualification that constitutes at least half of a learner’s programme, i.e. over 270 PLH.
  • Non-qualification activities - Employability, enrichment and pastoral (EEP) work that complements learning and enhances transferable skills and confidence
  • English and maths – All learners aged 16-19, who do not hold at least a GCSE grade 4, are required to study English and maths as part of their study programme.
  • Work experience – This is a key component in developing skills for work. You should offer learners experience that’s relevant to their career goals and local employment prospects.

My experience of working with NCFE on qualification development has been very positive. It was great to see that we had the right people in the room to contribute to the development.
