HE Regulatory Documents

In July 2016 NCG was awarded Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP). This represents a major breakthrough for the sector and puts colleges on a similar footing to universities.

NCG is one of the leading providers of education, training and employability across the UK. NCG’s higher education provision is delivered at Newcastle College, West Lancashire College, Kidderminster College, Carlisle College and Southwark College offering a range of qualifications which include:

· Foundation Degrees
· Higher National Diploma/Certificates
· One year Top Up Honours Degrees
· 3 year Honours Degrees
· Post Graduate Certificates in Teaching
· Masters programmes

As a higher education student at one of the NCG colleges you will be studying on a programme awarded by NCG.

HE Registry manages TDAP academic governance structures and the assurance of academic quality and standards and data for NCG.


Office for Students

We’re now OfS Registered, which means we meet the Office for Students requirements for course quality, academic standards, student support, student protection and more. For more information see www.officeforstudents.org.uk/the-register.


NCG Access and Participation Plan

Our Access and Participation Plan sets out how we will improve equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education.
It includes:
• Our ambition for change
• What we plan to do to achieve that change
• The targets we have set
• The investment we will make to deliver the plan.


NCG HE Student Protection Plan

Our Student Protection plan sets out what students can expect to happen should a course, campus, or institution close. The purpose of the plan is to ensure that our students can continue and complete their studies, or can be compensated, if this is not possible.

All higher education providers registered with the Office for Students (OfS) must have a student protection plan in place.
