NOCN Cskills Awards

What is NOCN

NOCN stands for the National Open College Network and it is a top ten Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation, offering hundreds of qualifications in many sectors, from Entry Level to Level 7. NOCN qualifications are flexible and responsive to learner needs and credit-based, consisting of individual units of assessment, each with an assigned level and credit value attached. Learners who demonstrate that they have achieved the learning outcomes of a specified unit are awarded credits and can collect/accumulate these over time towards the achievement of a full qualification.

NOCN offer Cskills qualifications which are specifically for the construction industry and are based on portfolio evidence rather than examinations.
