Education & Training
NOCN has been at the forefront of adult education and training for 30 years, from early days in community education, now it offers apprenticeship frameworks and recognised qualifications designed to help people gain meaningful careers in education.
These OFQUAL recognised qualifications are designed to provide an introduction to working in the education and training sector and as a teacher. Learners will gain knowledge on the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training, inclusive teaching and learning approaches, facilitating learning and development with individuals or groups and the role of assessment in the teaching and learning process. The Certificate will provide Learners with the opportunity to choose to study from a wide range of optional units to support specialist knowledge.
These apprenticeship frameworks are designed to enable children and young people to develop holistically, working to facilitate their personal, social and educational development, enabling them to develop their voice, influence and place in society and to reach their full potential. Youth Workers play an important role in this process by supporting children and young people in their personal, social and educational development, normally as part of a wider team delivering or organising formal and informal education opportunities in a variety of settings.
Apprentices in the youth work sector deliver youth and community support work in local and area projects, helping to run arts-based activities, community/environmental projects, residential activities, outdoor education and sporting activities.
