NOCN Regional Roadshow - Confirmed dates and venues

As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting recognised NOCN Centres, we are hosting a series of roadshow events around the country, offering one to one sessions and tailored advice from our expert team.

In a recent questionnaire sent out to all centres we asked for feedback on which topics are of most interest and we will be featuring information on all of these topics, including quality assurance and qualification development, and apprenticeships / end point assessments as part of the sessions. The roadshow event in your area is an opportunity for 1-2 members of your centre team to come along and find out more about the support and services that NOCN provides to its centres.

To find further information and to book a one to one session with an NOCN representative, please follow the links below.
