Work Experience with Reed NCFE

The College of North West London is proud to be working in partnership with Reed NCFE to deliver its programme of work experience.

Who We Are

REED NCFE is a joint venture company between public service provider Reed in Partnership, and award-winning awarding body NCFE.

As part of the Reed Group and drawing on 50 years of recruitment experience they have worked with many thousands of employers, from small local businesses to large international corporations.
