We are delighted to announce that ForSkills has been acquired by national awarding organisation NCFE.

We have already worked with Newcastle-headquartered NCFE on a partnership basis, providing NCFE customers with access to our diagnostics and interactive learning resources in order to support them in delivering Functional Skills. Building on this, NCFE decided to enter into an acquisition agreement with us so that NCFE can continue to meet customer needs and adapt to changes in the sector.

We will continue to operate from our offices in Mansfield and County Durham, with our 14 staff – many of whom are specialists in online diagnostic testing and learning content for Functional Skills and GCSE qualifications. ForSkills will now be overseen by a management board made up of NCFE directors and Myles Ponsonby, Executive Director of ForSkills.

We have had a successful few years, in which we have become a leading provider of online diagnostic testing and learning content for Functional Skills and GCSE qualifications. We have enjoyed working with NCFE during this time, and are pleased to now become part of the organisation.

NCFE identified that ForSkills joining the organisation would be a great opportunity to further provide learners and our customers with an essential diagnostic platform for English and maths. These skills are essential to equip learners to be ready for the world of work and wider engagement with society.

This is an exciting new chapter for us, and we are confident that NCFE – an ambitious and forward thinking organisation – is the right company to take ForSkills forward and pursue the opportunities in the growing Functional Skills qualifications market. This union will create new opportunities for learners, customers and both organisations, and we're looking forward to working even more closely with NCFE.
