Digital Productivity for Employees

Digital productivity qualifications to help learners, staff and students improve productivity.

Our end-to end Digital Productivity Skills qualifications are designed to give learners, staff and students the key digital skills they need to improve productivity in commonly used office software, such as Microsoft Word or Excel and the qualification is flexible enough to accommodate other office applications. Successful learners will receive the relevant Microsoft badge(s) as well as an NOCN qualification certificate. Once learners have completed the Digital Productivity Skills qualifications it is recommended that they go on to study the Level 3 Award in Productivity Improvement Practice. 


Full online learning solution

We have developed a unique full online solution for these qualifications as the primary route for learning, which includes lessons, resources and practices tests through the Moodle online portal.

Classroom and blended learning

Available for colleges and training providers to design courses of classroom delivery or blended learning. Guided Learning Hours (GLH) have been specified to support this route.

Nationwide test centres

The final qualifications are assessed by independent examination at test centres located nationwide.
