Malaysia: In October 2020, UK regulated Awarding Organisation, NOCN, established a ASEAN Regional Office in Kuala Lumpur to support research and business development activity in the region.  This was achieved through work with the Malaysian Investment Development Agency MIDA and with support from the British Chamber of Commerce in Malaysia.

Technical and Vocational qualifications are not widely recognised or valued in Malaysia; only Academic qualifications are managed nationally in a structured framework.

To secure government financial support, training programmes must have recognition from a third-party organisation.

The training organisation must show evidence that they operate strict policies and procedures regarding the delivery and assessment of the training programmes ensuring standards are met and learning outcomes are consistently marked or assessed.

NOCN offers a range of support to help training centres and education institutes to improve their quality and performance.

NOCN’s accreditation services enabled both SSTC and the Wild Geese Group to develop their training centres and skills programme to meet their specific skills needs.

Specifically NOCN has helped SSTC and Wild Geese Group by

  • Designing specific programmes that meet local skills needs.
  • Developing programmes aligned to funding requirements.
  • Demonstrated third party oversight on quality assurance, assessment, and certification.
  • Included recognition of prior achievement.
  • Mapped the programmes to UK education levels and standards
  • Articulated progression routes to further study at a higher level.
