NCFE is one of the UK’s leading accreditation bodies and assures the delivery of the courses.The College trains practitioners to support and serve the population of the UK. The Principals have recognised that the need of the public in foot health provision can no longer be adequately met by the NHS. In addition, they believe that the public should have a genuine choice of where and when they can obtain treatment and in the nature of the treatment they can access. Foot care is absolutely essential to the maintenance of good health, and is cost-effective in averting and delaying the onset of serious illness requiring costly intervention.The college also recognise the essential need for modern health care professionals to attain standards realistically required for safe and effective 21st century health care practice. To this end the College offers a range of post qualification diplomas, workshops, master-classes and continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities to support its qualified practitioners.We are both registered with The Alliance of Private Sector Practitioners
