NEBOSH Certificate pass rates published

International Workplace has just received examination results for the most recent cohort of students for the NEBOSH National General Certificate (NGC), which were above the national average.

Results for the three examinations were as follows:

  • NGC1 Management of Health and Safety: 60%

  • GC2: Controlling Workplace Hazards: 85%

  • GC3: Health and Safety Practical Application: 100%

These compare favourably with the national average published by NEBOSH, whose latest published figures (from 2014) list pass rates between 53%-72% for NGC1; 76%-85% for GC2; and 89%-92% for GC3.

Speaking about International Workplace’s NEBOSH results, Lead Tutor Kate Gardner said:

“We’re delighted with these latest results. The NEBOSH National General Certificate is a notoriously tricky set of examinations. First, because they are written exams, and for many people taking them it’s been a long time since they had to sit and write with a pen for two hours solid.

“Second, you tend to find students are either from an administrative or managerial background, or from an operational background. The former sometimes struggle with the practical risks covered in the GC2 unit, while people who have been ‘on the tools’ can find the regulatory and procedural aspects of NGC1 a little intimidating.

“These latest results are a testament to the hard work our students put and to the dedication of the tutor team here at International Workplace,. We put a lot of work into supporting our students and to making courses fun as well as informative. It’s nice to see it pay off.”
