OCN NI Compliance & Audit - Contingency Planning


Dear Colleague,

Happy New Year! Thank you for continuing to support OCN NI.

OCN NI are aware of continuing industrial action which may impact candidates sitting examinations and assessments. In line with government guidance, we recommend that centres should review their contingency plans well in advance of exam or assessment scheduling for both Essential Skills and VTQ qualifications. 

Please contact OCN NI as soon as possible if you are expecting any disruption that might affect the sitting of exams and/or assessments.

For further information please see:
