What we do

Designed with people in mind, NOCN qualifications offer a step-by-step, unit-by-unit route into learning and skills that help to increase learners’ confidence and employability and make sure that the qualifications fit with today’s industry needs.

We have over 2,500 centres across the UK offering NOCN qualifications and nearly 400 qualifications on both the National Qualification Framework (NQF) and the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). These qualifications are made up of more than 1,000 units from a wide range of areas including modern languages, construction, health and social care, hospitality and catering, warehousing, retail, trade unions, creative arts and design, foundations for learning and life, functional skills, preparation for work including employability, security, credit control and offender learning.

NOCN qualifications range from Entry Level to Level 5 and include important skills for life as well as the skills that underpin the apprenticeship frameworks such as Functional Skills.
