Coronavirus update for customers

Operational Update on NOCN Group Qualifications and Services

NOCN Group offers a wide range of services including regulated qualifications, EPA for apprenticeships, Job Cards in construction, Access to HE Diplomas, bespoke accreditation and educational and skills support training.

You will find out more operational detail on the implications of COVID19 for each of these services, including advice for students and centres preparing for external assessments, through the following links:

Please note that NOCN will be following the guidance issued by the ESFA, IfATE, Ofqual, CCEA, QAA and Qualifications Wales, and will update our customers as things change.

If you have any concerns or would like to discuss the impact on your centre, apprentices or learners please contact us on nocn@nocn.org.uk or 0300 999 1177 (Option 1).

Working to support our valued customers

You will be aware of the various Government and World Health Organisation (WHO) announcements and official advice over COVID19.
The situation is unprecedented and has been continually changing. With colleges and schools now closed and the country in effect ‘locked down’, other than essential services, we will endeavour to continue to support you, your apprentices, learners and card applicants through this difficult period.

We support Ofqual’s statement that the most important principle is fairness to all learners and apprentices, not only for those being assessed now, but also for those assessed before COVID-19.

Centre Support

All our staff are working from home, so we are still offering front line support, through telephony, email and web chat as usual.
Certificates for regulated qualifications and cards are being issued to centres in the normal way.
We aim to provide as full a range of our services as possible, where these can be delivered remotely, and we can use remote or recorded assessment methods, whilst maintaining the integrity of the assessment.
All face-to-face appointments for approval visits, External Quality Assurers, and external assessments have been suspended until training centres reopen and normal business resumes.
We are providing digital on-line support, including offering WebEx interviews, developing online invigilated exams in place of physical papers, and digital content support.


Please contact us to discuss how best we can support you on nocn@nocn.org.uk or 0300 999 1177 (Option 1).

Best wishes from all at NOCN to you our valued customers. We hope you all remain safe and well.

Graham Hasting-Evans, Group Managing Director

Transport & Logistics

NOCN accredited qualifications and units support people entering into the Transportation & Logistics industry.

NOCN accredited qualifications and units support people entering into the transport and logistics industry. To ensure our qualifications meet the needs of the industry, NOCN works with leading organisations, Sector Skills Councils and Standard-Setting Bodies. Our qualifications are designed to introduce learners to the skills and knowledge required to progress within the sector.

NATS has developed a number of accredited qualifications with NOCN for air traffic trainees both from the UK and abroad, cementing the organisation's international reputation for high-quality training in such a critical area.  Please note these are restricted qualifications and only available to centres who meet specific requirements.

As one of the UK's largest providers of End Point Assessment Standards, currently, we offer EPA for Highways Maintenance, but continue to work with the transport and logistics industry to develop more apprenticeship standards.

The One Awards Access to HE Diploma is available across transport and logistics disciplines and prepares people without the necessary qualifications for study at university.

NOCN Group provides skills and education consultancy and research advice across multiple sectors including the transport and logistics sectors in the UK and internationally for employers, professional bodies and governments.
