The NCC Home Learning Mental Health Awareness QCF covers topics such as understanding mental health, stress, phobias, anxiety, eating disorders, post-natal depression and schizophrenia among others – all conditions labelled under the topic mental health. This qualification has been developed due to popular demand for our Mental Health Certificate.

Awarding Organisation

Ascentis was originally established in 1975 as OCNW, a co-operative scheme between Universities and Colleges of Further Education.

Ascentis was the first "Open College" in the UK and served the needs of its members for over 34 years. Throughout this period, OCNW grew yet maintained its independence in order that it could continue to respond to the requirements of its customers and provide a consistently high standard of service to all centres across the country and in recent years to its increasing cohorts of overseas learners.

In 2009 OCNW became Ascentis - a company limited by guarantee and a registered educational charity.

Ascentis is distinctive and unusual in that it is both:- a National Awarding Body (NAB) approved by the office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and an Access Validating Agency (AVA) for "Access to HE Programmes" licensed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).

    Brilliant resource for gaining qualification while working!

    I have now completed two courses with NCC and have two more to complete. I found them equally enjoyable and highly recommend studying with NCC. The latest course I undertook was Mental Heath awareness and area I needed to re touch on to keep me relevant to my role. The content has good depth and the exam is fresh but challenging. The NCC staff are always was superb and extremely quick at setting up access to courses and a great help if I required any support.
    Thanks to you all at NCC support.

    Very interesting and knowledgeable course

    The course allows the student to work at a speed that suits them, allowing them to fit the studying in with other commitments such as family and work. Feedback from the tutor allows the student to develop their understanding of the topic and what is expected of them when completing each sections so they can improve when the complete the next section. The content of the course was informative which allowed the student to incorporate learning with their own personal experiences. Overall, a very interesting and knowledgeable course for anyone working in a social science setting.

    Feedback helpful, questions answered quickly - would recommend

    The course materials arrived quickly through the post. Emails were always responded to in a timely manner. The feedback I received from my tutor was helpful and supportive. I would definitely use NCC again and enjoyed studying using the course materials as essential tools as part of the process. The support I receive was beneficial and any questions I had were responded to quickly and in a positive way. I have recommended NCC to my friends and colleagues.
