Who we helpLearners

The learner is at the centre of everything we do

Through our member colleges and other learning centres, we give you, the learner, a real opportunity to develop the skills you need to progress in life – whether it’s finding employment for the first time, achieving a place at university, making a career change or developing skills for the love of learning. The range of qualifications and accreditation we offer through our OCN London nationally accredited qualifications meet all these different needs.

Our qualifications and accreditation offer many benefits to the learner and are:

  • flexible – you can complete units and gain credits towards a nationally recognised qualification;
  • motivational – achieving ‘bite-sized’ learning and getting a certificate for it encourages you to continue learning;
  • tailored to the individual – learn at your own pace and be assessed in a way that is appropriate to you.

For further information about our qualifications, contact your local college, learning centre or view the Ofqual register.

Learner FAQs

What are credits?

A credit is a way of measuring and valuing your learning

What can I use my certificate for?

OCN London qualifications and accreditation are nationally recognised and accepted as means of entry into employment as well as further learning within further and/or higher education.

What if I am moving part way through my learning?

OCN London credits are nationally recognised. This means that if you move to another part of the country your credits move with you and you can achieve more credits at your new location with a new centre.

How will my learning be assessed?

Your tutor will tell you more about how your learning is to be assessed. On most courses, the tutor or trainer assesses your work as you go along and this does not necessarily involve exams. For example, the course work you produce, such as computer printouts, paintings or projects, will show you and your tutor what you have learned.

How do I get my certificate?

The centre where you are learning is responsible for registering you with OCN London. The centre notifies us of your achievement and we will then issue your certificate, which your centre will forward to you.

How do I get a replacement if I have lost, or damaged, my Certificate?

You can request a replacement certificate by completing our replacement certificate request form. There is a fee for processing your request that can be paid online.
