NOCN works with many partners in the sub-continent to provide educational and skills related consultancy, accreditation and certification for qualifications, and endorsements for locally designed training courses.

We are proud to be part of the Indian skills revolution and have a Delhi base. 

Advice is given on vocational skills policy, sector skills development, improving standards and embedding skills into large scale infrastructure projects.

Working in partnership in this way, NOCN India Skills Foundation brings the best of British educational standards to support Indian innovation and skills development. The aim is for Indian managers and professionals to have skills that are recognised at international standards of excellence to effectively compete in a global market.

Acknowledgement of our fantastic track record in India came recently when we were appointed by the Department for International Development to bring vital support to the world’s largest upskilling and training programme there.
