NOCN and AELS Ltd

NOCN is pleased to have entered into an agreement with Italian organisations Higher Learning 25 (HL25) and AELS Ltd to offer NOCN ESOL International examinations to a large number of state and private schools and universities.

School pupils, university graduates and teachers will all be able to take the ESOL International examinations at a range of CEFR level from A1 – C2. As the operation rolls out we aim to be offering NOCN ESOL International English Language exams in close to 600 different eCampus sites in mainland Italy, Sicily and Sardinia.

This new partnership is a very exciting move for NOCN and will complement the large number of NOCN ESOL examinations currently delivered in Greece, to enable learners the opportunity to improve English language skills to help them with work and life prospects, with leading providers of education in Italy.
