NOCN offers a range of employability qualifications to help people enter employment and succeed at work.

Employability skills are personal qualities that make a person employable. They are sometimes called “soft skills” or transferable skills as they are different from technical skills and work experience in a particular job role or industry.

Employability skills can be applied to any area of work or life and are arguably more important now than ever before due to the rapidly changing job market.

NOCN Employability Skills Qualifications range from Entry Level 1 to Level 3. These qualifications have been designed to provide different groups of learners with the skills, attributes, and behaviours that they need to enter and succeed in the world of work. Find out more below:
