Funded access to ENIC for NHS Trusts

16 August, 2023

The NHS England National Talent for Care team are delighted to announce that they have funded licences for UK ENIC to support the NHS and Apprenticeship Leads.

UK ENIC is the designated national agency for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills.

This process and the cost attached have long been cited as a barrier for widening participation in apprenticeships and traditional nursing and AHP (Allied Health Professions) degree programmes.

NHS Trusts in England can now register two staff per Trust who will be able to check staff member’s international certificate/s through ENIC. This is particularly important for overseas staff wishing to undertake apprenticeships and evidence if they have English and Maths at level 2 (GCSE A-C/9-4).

To register up to two members of staff to use the service please email with the following details:

  • Trust name
  • Staff members name/s (you can register up to 2 users per Trust)
  • Staff members job title
  • Staff members email address

Details of a training webinar, materials and login details will be circulated to those that register so that they are able to use the service.
