NOCN offers over 650 vocational and technical qualifications spanning from level 1 to level 7, covering various subject areas. These qualifications are designed to cater to the needs of individuals seeking to upskill and enhance their workforce capabilities in the UK. NOCN recognises that the fast-paced skills demands of the industry and diverse global regions may require qualifications beyond the scope of their UK-regulated offerings.
As part of this process, our qualification experts will review the subject matter, structure and level of the training, and the assessment approach planned. After consultation and changes where needed, the Endorsed Programme is added to the NOCN Qualification Database. Then training centres can register students against this programme, and on completion of their studies, training centres can claim certificates from NOCN which carry the logo of NOCN and the Accreditation partner.
Quality assurance of the NOCN International Endorsed Programmes is managed similarly to other regulated qualifications. Centres are reviewed before being approved to deliver the programmes, and then receive ongoing quality reviews and support from NOCN Quality Advisors to ensure quality is maintained and delivery and assessment are standardised across all learners and centres.
In the review process, NOCN Group can assign equivalent levels and credit values to accredited training programmes where the programme level is appropriate. In many cases, higher education organisations will recognise these values, allowing progression to study further.
The endorsement is confirmation that the programme of learning you offer has undergone a robust quality assurance process which will enable your programme to receive an endorsement from a leading awarding organisation.
The Endorsed Employer Programme is for medium to large employers that have an in-house training programme which they wish to have endorsed. This is similar to the Endorsed Training Programme, but it will be clearly branded as an employer programme.
