About us

NEA was established in 1941 determined to create an academy which encouraged Learners to develop as individuals who could express themselves both vocally and physically, explore their creativity with confidence and originality.

Today NEA is one of the leading regulated Boards in the UK. NEA is an innovative examinations board, offering diverse and varied disciplines through well structured syllabi. NEA encompasses the fast paced, ever changing world around us within its examinations, allowing Learners to develop their creativity and imagination, enabling them to grow their skills to fit their environment. Learners can obtain UCAS Tariff points at level 3, enhancing their chances of University or Higher Education entrance.

NEA remains determined to provide every Learner with the opportunity to reach his or her full potential and to enjoy their examination experience, regardless of the marks obtained.

We believe no Learner should be denied the opportunity of taking an examination and provide a non-discriminatory policy with regard to education, ability, culture and background.

The Board of Directors believes that its strengths lie in providing diverse and accessible syllabi, setting meaningful and attainable targets for Learners, providing support and guidance for teachers and appointing well qualified and experienced examiners.
