NB: Based on latest information available (as of June 2016), NEBOSH qualifications are not currently eligible for ESFA funding in England:

  • The ESFA does not normally fund “qualifications which are linked to licence to practice or more generally intended to meet an employer’s statutory and/or legal responsibilities” (such as health and safety)
  • The ESFA normally only funds qualifications recognised in the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). NEBOSH qualifications are recognised in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).
