These qualifications are vocationally based and as such, offers the opportunity for learners to demonstrate an achievement of practical skills, understanding and knowledge in Mathematics.

Completion of the NOCN Level 1 and Level 2 Awards in Mathematics Skills does not mean that the learner has reached full competence across the Mathematics curriculum at the level achieved, but it does show that the learner has made significant progress in improving competence in specific areas and recognises the
first steps of the journey that the learner needs to make in order to progress to further study in Mathematics or into employment.
