NOCN achieves a leading position on the AAO Register
Posted 28 March 2017
NOCN is now positioned in second place on the Register of Apprenticeship Assessment Organisations which was released on 28th March 2017. Approved to assess 21 apprenticeship standards NOCN shares its top two position with City & Guilds.
Employers can use the register to establish which organisations are approved to deliver independent End Point Assessments (EPA) for each apprenticeship standard and once that organisation has been selected the employer then confirms the decision with their training provider.
The EPA is a vital part of the apprenticeship journey as it evaluates the individual’s competency and provides certification to qualify the apprentice. From the outset, employers should ensure that apprenticeships are designed in a way that supports the End Point Assessment.
NOCN's Managing Director Graham Hasting-Evans comments: "We are delighted to have moved up the rankings again and our team is working hard to ensure that we can deliver End Point Assessment to a high quality standard, that is cost effective and supports the whole apprenticeship journey for the employer, training provider and apprentice. We are rapidly becoming market leaders and our experience as an awarding organisation is a key benefit we pass on to our End Point Assessment customers as learning and development is at the heart of what we do."
NOCN, making apprenticeships matter within 21 standards.
