National Awarding Organisation and Apprentice Assessment Organisation
NOCN Group (which now includes CSkills Awards) is a market-leading national Awarding Organisation and top two Government-approved Apprentice Assessment Organisation that has been 'making learning matter by creating opportunities' for 30 years.
We are trusted and recognised by employers (including major high street banks and retailers), training providers (including colleges and private providers) and learners in the UK and internationally, providing a high quality, flexible service with a focus on increasing social mobility and productivity.
As a progressive educational charity with a social rather than commercial focus, we are at the forefront of vocational skills development and apprenticeships, including the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in the UK. We are also now the second largest awarding organisation in the UK construction sector and are committed to working for a better future for UK construction skills.
