About us

The OCR Ireland office opened in Belfast City Centre in 1992 before moving to its current location at Riverwood House, Newforge Lane in 1996.

The small but dynamic team of four staff offer advice and support on a local level to schools, colleges and training providers.

At the moment there are two significant issues affecting schools, colleges and training providers - Entitlement Framework and Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
