About OCN North East Region
We are a national Awarding Organisation and registered educational charity. Our primary objectives are simple: we are passionate about widening participation and promoting lifetime learning for all.
Both independently and in partnership with the National Open College Network (NOCN) we create, develop and certificate nationally recognised qualifications that are flexible and inclusive. Our qualifications are specifically designed to enable our learners to achieve their individual goals and meet the growing challenges and demands of the 21st century.
Our track record speaks for itself. For nearly 20 years we’ve been offering a seamless learning accreditation service that’s highly valued by our recognised centres and learners. We’re vibrant, responsive and unashamedly proud of our established reputation for outstanding customer service.
