Working with NOCN Group to provide quality qualifications for all

Think Pieces

By Alicia Platts · April 26, 2022

For over 10 years, Intuitive Thinking Skills has been an approved NOCN Centre delivering Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 qualifications. NOCN, part of NOCN Group is an educational charity and UK regulated Awarding Organisation whose core aims are to help learners reach their full potential and for organisations to thrive.

Together NOCN Group and Intuitive Thinking Skills have developed numerous bespoke qualifications to support our commitment to provide our learners with high-quality skills for progression into employment and education.

Learners rarely have direct contact with NOCN, but you will notice their logo when you receive your certificate. However, NOCN supports behind the scenes to ensure your qualification gives you the skills you need to progress in your chosen career.

As an Awarding Organisation, NOCN design the qualifications we deliver, to a specific standard set by the UK Government via the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). In order to be an approved NOCN centre, we then demonstrate to NOCN that all teachers, leaders, and administrative staff have the required skills for teaching, assessment, management, and administration of the qualification you wish to undertake.
