Open College Network Northern Ireland

Open College Network Northern Ireland (OCN NI) is a UK-recognised Awarding Organisation based in Northern Ireland that advances education by developing nationally recognised qualifications and recognising the achievements of adults and young people.

They work with centres such as Further Education Colleges, Private Training Organisations, Voluntary & Community Organisations, Schools, SME’s and Public Sector bodies to provide learners with opportunities to progress into further learning and/or employment. OCN NI is a not-for-profit organisation that re-invests all of its resources into developing new qualifications and educational resources.

NOCN Group and OCN NI have worked together for over 30 years, with a formal partnership in place for the last ten years. The two organisations offer each other’s qualifications, opening more choice and expertise to centres across the UK.
