Apprenticeships are integral to the country's economic recovery with three million new apprenticeship starts promised by the Government over the next five years.

NOCN is at the forefront of apprenticeship reforms including the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in the UK, working in partnership with employers, FE colleges, training providers and skills experts in Trailblazer groups to develop a range of standards and assessments for new apprenticeships. We are a Government-approved Apprenticeship Assessment Organisation for End Point Assessments of apprenticeships in our specialist sectors.

NOCN has many apprenticeships available and is working on new ones to support this objective.

  • Are you ready for the Levy? NOCN is offering free, informal advice sessions for college leaders, private training providers and employers leaders.
