NCFE endorses Alchmea’s Diploma in Studio Sound Engineering Course, having reviewed its fitness for purpose against accepted occupational standards. NCFE validates the quality of our provision as equivalent to Level 4 on the Qualification and Credit Framework. While level 4 relates to academic aspects of the programme, the reality is that it is difficult to accurately plot “real world” practical activity against a traditional academic framework. Other independent assessments have deemed practical aspects of our Studio Sound Diploma to be closer to level 6.
NCFE is recognised as an awarding body by the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The regulators are the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, the Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) in Wales and the Council for Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.
