OCN Qualifications Available
The National Open College Network provides external moderation. You will receive a certificate from
NOCN. You will also receive a certificate from Lucis College
As many of the courses that we offer are at the cutting edge of complementary therapy the acquisition of this accreditation allows the practitioner an added advantage in terms of credibility of their course and qualification.
Another advantage of the NOCN framework is that it allows for accredited prior learning to be taken into account if you have sufficient knowledge and experience in relevant topics and can provide verifiable evidence. This allows students of Lucis College to expand their range of skills without repetition of certain core topics such as the subtle energy systems.
Please note there is an additional fee for the OCN accreditation

These levels have the following descriptors:
The acquisition of a limited range of basic skills, knowledge and understanding in highly
structured and self-referenced contexts which permit the identification of progression
from the learner's point of entry to the learning process.
The acquisition of a foundation of competences, knowledge and understanding in a
limited range of predictable and structured contexts that prepare the learner to
progress to further achievements.
The acquisition of a broader range of competences, knowledge and understanding which
demonstrate the extension of previous abilities in less predictable and structured
contexts and prepare the learner to progress to further achievements.
The acquisition of a more complex range of competences, knowledge and understanding
in contexts which develop autonomous, analytical and critical abilities that prepare
the learner to progress to further independent achievements.
The following chart illustrates the approximate equivalences between credit framework levels and other forms of measuring achievement.
Entry Level provides a basis for progression to other learning programmes within the framework.
Level One is comparable to NVQ1, Foundation GNVQ and GCSE grades D-G.
Level Two is comparable to NVQ2, Intermediate GNVQ and GCSE grades A*-C.
Level Three is comparable to NVQ3. A Level, AS Level and AVCE.
