Training & Development

We offer a range of training and development sessions throughout the year from half-day introductory courses to qualifications with four teaching days.


You might want to consider a training and development course at OCN London:

  • to develop your own understanding;
  • to improve your confidence when delivering OCN London units;
  • to become a qualified IQA or assessor;
  • for continuing professional development, or
  • to improve practices at your centre.

Our training sessions are designed to support the development of staff at OCN London Recognised Centres. However, you do not have to be working at an OCN London Recognised Centre to attend most of our training sessions.

To book a training session, locate your chosen session on the Training & Events page.
