Centre Agreement

It is important that you familiarise yourself with the Centre Agreement before you apply to become an approved centre. It sets out our respective rights and responsibilities and outlines how we will work together.

NCFE uses Credit Safe to perform credit checks on new centre applications which are not public sector organisations for the purposes of deciding whether to offer credit, and also to prevent fraud, money laundering and any other unlawful activity. We reserve the right to request that a blended credit check be undertaken using these details. A blended check allows us to gain insight into the wider business interests and track records of the people behind the company, as well as the company’s data. This credit check against individuals may subsequently show on an individual’s credit history. From this check and where appropriate, NCFE may refuse credit and / or custom without further explanation.

External Quality Assurer

As you're not already approved by CACHE we'll allocate an External Quality Assurer once we receive your application. They'll contact you to arrange an approval visit within 5 working days.

During the visit your External Quality Assurer will check that you meet our approval criteria and have everything in place to successfully deliver CACHE products. The visit could last up to a full day and you'll be invoiced for the cost of the approval visit. Please see our current Fees and Pricing document for details of fees. Our User Guide to the Approval Visit explains what the External Quality Assurer will look at on their visit.

Within 5 working days of the visit, your External Quality Assurer will complete a report confirming whether or not you've met our approval criteria, our EQA team will then email you the report.

If you've not fully met our criteria, your External Quality Assurer will provide details of what you need to do to meet the criteria. If the approval visit is successful, we'll add your details to our database and send you confirmation of approval by email.
