What will you do in 2018? If you are looking for a challenge and the chance to do something different and rewarding, now is your opportunity to train with NCT and support new parents in your local area.

Our course is flexible, so you can fit studying around your schedule. It's an opportunity to support parents at a key period and a chance to give something back. Upon completion, you can work as a self-employed NCT Practitioner.

We have study locations across the UK including tutorial groups in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh so you’re bound to find a course that suits you.

After completing the first year of course, you can specialise in an area that interests you.

We have a number of routes available including:
