Our Academic Partners

Here at the Online Learning College we partner with some of the best awarding bodies in the country and worldwide. By partnering with some of the best organisations in the training sector we are able to offer fully accredited qualifications to our students with certificates that employers know and trust.


Cache are one of the UK’s best known awarding bodies and have been in operation since 1947. There are other companies which offer childcare qualifications but none have the same history and high standards as Cache. Employers in Childcare know this. So if you are walking into a job interview with a Cache qualification you can rest assured that this proves you can provide Early Years care to a very high standard.


“CACHE was set up in 1945 under the name of the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) by the Ministry of Health. The board set the syllabus for the first national examination which took place in 1947. In 1994, the NNEB merged with the Council for Early Years Awards to form CACHE. Then, in 2001, we incorporated the National Association for Maternal and Child Welfare and Her Majesty the Queen became our patron. In 2009, after demand from our Centres we started offering qualifications in adult care. In 2012, we used our expertise and quality from our Child Care and Social Care qualifications to launch four new health qualifications. In the intervening years we have continually invested in high quality qualifications. Written and developed by experts, they have helped millions of learners to raise professional standards in the sector, earning us a reputation for excellence and leadership.”
