OCN NI Endorsed Courses enable centres to gain recognition for your own bespoke training courses. These courses are written and owned by you, but have the added benefit of a nationally recognised awarding organisations stamp of approval. OCN NI accreditation will ensure your training is of a high standard and learners will benefit from being awarded an OCN NI Endorsed Course Certificate to recognise their achievements.

A collection of bespoke units make up your Endorsed Course. Bespoke Units are developed and tailored to meet your requirements. You decide the content of your units, and the OCN NI Business Development team will advise and direct you through the unit development process. Upon development OCN NI will accredit your bespoke units, and combine these together to form your Endorsed Course.

Whilst OCN NI Endorsed Courses do not provide learners with a nationally recognised qualification regulated by Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation), they are suitable for centres wishing to:

  • Promote its credibility by forging links with a nationally recognised Awarding Organisation
  • Enhance its courses by seeking external quality assurance from a nationally recognised Awarding Organisation
  • Enable its successful learners to receive an achievement certificate from a nationally recognised Awarding Organisation
  • Draw on the curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment expertise of staff within a nationally recognised Awarding Organisation

The OCN NI is experienced in accrediting Endorsed Courses for a wide variety of organisations such as, Further Education Colleges, Private Training Organisations, Adult Education Providers, Voluntary & Community Organisations, SME’s and Public Sector Bodies (i.e. Health Trusts, NI Prison Service and Local Government Agencies).
