With a background in education stretching back to the 1980s, OCN Credit4Learning is a long established not for profit educational charity working to improve the quality of education across the UK. We redistribute profits back to projects working with vulnerable groups. This is one of the unique aspects of how we operate as an Accrediting Body. Many of our partner organisations have established successful programmes through working with us, and can testify to our supportive, innovative and refreshing approach. Please feel free to call us for more information.
Working with us
By working with us you are ensuring that the courses that you accredit remain unique and are delivered to your personal specifications. This is of crucial importance as it is you, as the training provider, who are the experts in your field. Accreditation with OCNCredit4Learning underpins your expertise.
As a member you will retain the direction of your courses by maintaining the style, method of delivery and assessment criteria whilst receiving the quality assurance and recognition of accreditation.
We work in partnership with you to embed quality assurance procedures leading to the successful external certification of your learners. You will find this process to be efficient, timely and engaging, focusing on your individual requirements.
OCN Credit4Learning can take your existing training through the processes of external validation/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and also offer programme development advice to support the design and processes of new incentives. We welcome innovative and creative ways of working and offer a flexible and supportive framework to explore these initial ideas.
Our training and consultancy services provide a variety of courses through a team of highly experienced trainers to suit the needs of both your organisation and your learners.
There are many different areas of provision and support at OCN Credit4Learning and we trust that you will easily be able to find what you are looking for.
Programme Development Advisers are available to assist you in the development of new or existing training programmes and/or CPD. In addition to this there is a range of writing services available at OCN Credit4Learning from short units of learning through to complete design of whole training programmes.
Whilst we actively encourage you to work alongside us to write your existing training material, we do also provide a full advice and writing service which offers the option of us writing your existing training into ‘panel ready’ design allowing you to be confident that the programmes you present at our Recognition Panels will meet the quality assurance standards necessary for accreditation.
By utilising our Programme Development and/or consultancy advice it is also possible to have initial programme ideas fully designed and written for you.
