Coronavirus Support Scheme
Back in March, we decided to release our NCRQ Safety for Managers qualification for free to do our bit to make a positive impact on society despite the challenging situation. Anticipating a moderate uptake, we ended up providing over 20,000 free qualifications to businesses and individuals up and down the country – equivalent to £4.5m of health and safety training. The impact of such a massive uptake will have extensive and long-lasting benefits for so many, and not just those who have completed the course.
We were overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm this initiative garnered, and so when the UK Government announced a second lockdown, we decided it was important we provided another opportunity to gain NCRQ qualifications.
This time, we have decided to do something a little bit different.
We’ve launched a new NCRQ Support Scheme to make our qualifications more accessible to those who have been furloughed, or are currently looking for work.
Under this scheme, we are offering all our qualifications at half the usual price for those who meet our eligibility criteria, throughout the month of November.
NCRQ have always intended to put purpose before profit and, at this moment, it feels appropriate to ensure that those who may have been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic are able to continue to develop skills and knowledge. We truly believe that up-skilling businesses and individuals in health and safety can be an effective measure to support the public through this time, and hope that this scheme enables professionals to remain life-long learners.
At the end of the day, health and safety is everyone’s business – you just might not know it yet.

Why aren’t you offering a free qualification again?
The free initiative was a fantastic experience for all of us at NCRQ, and highlighted to many the importance of gaining exceptional health and safety training.
However, this time, we wanted to widen our offering and allow more people to gain higher level qualifications at a lower cost. During the first lockdown, numerous prospective students told us they wanted to continue with our studies, but felt they would struggle financially at this time. As such, we have thought very carefully about how best to responsibly support those who are aiming to continue their learning.
While we wish we could provide all qualifications for free to anyone who needed them, the reality is that the best way to support both the economy and individuals is to be a sustainable business. Therefore, we have decided to significantly reduce the cost of all our qualifications for those in need – rather than providing only one qualification for free.
