Qualifications

An international, leading Awarding Organisation, NOCN serves thousands of Centres with high quality regulated vocational and technical qualifications and apprenticeships. Qualifications range from Entry to Level 7 in a number of sectors.

NOCN is a top ten Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation, offering hundreds of qualifications in many sectors, from Entry Level to Level 7. Our subjects include everything from STEM to business admin, construction and financial services. NOCN's Skills for Life and employability qualifications are designed to help learners advance their career prospects and open doors to new opportunities.

NOCN qualifications are flexible and responsive to learner needs and credit-based, consisting of individual units of assessment, each with an assigned level and credit value attached. Learners who demonstrate that they have achieved the learning outcomes of a specified unit are awarded credits and can collect/accumulate these over time towards the achievement of a full qualification.
