We would like to draw your attention to the following controls and mitigations that we currently allow.
NOCN is encouraging centres to plan and make use of blended learning opportunities. Delivery staff should consider using holistic and synoptic approaches for overlapping content to reduce delivery time, where this is possible.
NOCN already provides some Remote Invigilation and is working hard to provide additional support for remote invigilation. The update on Functional Skills and ESOL can be found here.
NOCN is working with the Sector bodies and Committees of Awarding Organisations to agree a standardised approach where applicable. As NOCN is not qualified in public health information we can not provide any advice or guidance to Training Providers on whether it is safe for them to operate or not, but would obviously insist that local regulations should be abided by, that risk analysis should be regularly conducted and the mitigations implemented.
NOCN Office and External Quality Assurance colleagues will continue to operate. We are currently undertaking 30% of visits face to face where this is allowed. We are still providing a full level of service remotely to our customers.
