The event took place over three days and attracted over 1,000 delegates. The NISAI/NOCN exhibition stand was very busy throughout and attracted many delegates, expressing an interest in NOCN qualifications including; Productivity, English Languages courses (NOCN ESOL International) qualifications and online learning options.

Professor Daniel Khan OBE who represented NOCN at World Didac Asia 2018, greeted Dr Teerakiat Jareonsettasin, the Minister of Education for Thailand and a delegation from Thailand’s Education Reform Committee who came to the stand. The Minister expressed great interest in the UK’s vocational qualifications as Thailand expands its country’s skills base to meet the global challenges through international standards and skills requirements.
