NCC Education is an awarding organisation and a global provider of British education in Computing and Business. Working with a global network of accredited partner centres, NCC Education provides learners an affordable route to obtain a UK university degree and access to British education without leaving their home country. With a strong heritage dating back to 1966, quality is the cornerstone for NCC Education’s continued success. The organisation has developed stringent quality assurance processes to ensure the same high quality standard is applied on qualifications, accredited partner centres and services offered throughout the world. NCC Education qualifications are recognised by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and are widely valued by employers and universities worldwide. NCC Education, originally a division of the National Computing Centre, was first established as an IT initiative by the British Government in 1966. NCC Education started offering IT qualifications in 1976 and from 1997 developed its higher education portfolio to include Business, English language and Foundation level qualifications. In 1997, NCC Education was incorporated as an awarding body of British qualifications. Today, NCC Education is an internationally recognised UK awarding body in Computing and Business, with a strong global presence, offering qualifications in more than 50 countries.
