NOCN Group has announced that it has entered a new partnership with the National Association for Teaching English and Community Languages to Adults [NATECLA].

NATECLA is the national, professional organisation for ESOL teachers. The organisation aims to advance all aspects of education and training in English for adult speakers of other languages for the public benefit.

NOCN Group offer a range of ESOL qualifications both in the UK and internationally. The NOCN ESOL Skills for Life package includes English Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening qualifications at Entry Level 1 to Level 2, along with a range of teaching and assessment materials. These qualifications are already being used by hundreds of colleges and training providers throughout the UK to help improve the lives and enhance the career prospects of learners.

Commenting on the new partnership, Skills for Life product manager, Andy Costello, said: “I’m very pleased that NOCN is now affiliated with NATECLA. NATECLA are a leader in the promotion and improvement of standards for teaching other languages, so it is fantastic to be working with an organisation that shares similar values to NOCN.

“For many years NOCN has provided high quality ESOL qualifications both in the UK and internationally. We already have a very experienced team, but this partnership will serve to enhance what we can offer to our centres.

“This is a very exciting time for NOCN as we prepare to launch our new Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [TESOL]. This qualification, which is equivalent to the widely known CELTA, gives us a wider offer and a role as a leader in standards for language teaching.”
