Our History

FCC began life in 1945 when it was established by the Ministry of Health as the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) .

In 1994, the NNEB merged with the Council for Early Years Awards to form the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education, otherwise known as CACHE.

After the sale of CACHE in September 2015, the charity changed its name to the Foundation for Training and Education in Care (FTEC) while trustees considered the charity’s new strategic direction.

Following trustee deliberations, and the recruitment of new trustees, Future Care Capital (FCC) was established in February 2017 with The late Queen Elizabeth II as Royal Patron. The charity is sustainable and funded through an endowment, and we are exploring innovative ways to invest further into health and care technologies.
