AoC Conference - NOCN sponsors student photo award

NOCN is proud to be sponsoring the AoC student photographic competition once more (third year running!) because it knows the power of creativity and learning to help students build rewarding careers for life.

It is doing this through a charitable grant, as the aims of the competition fit with NOCN's own charitable objectives - to find out more about NOCN as a charity click here.

NOCN's Jane Jones explains the importance of the competition to NOCN:

"Creativity is at the heart of learning and enables students to build rewarding and meaningful careers. NOCN is a champion of learning to raise aspirations and create opportunities. This competition recognises excellence in photography from students in FE Colleges across the country and every year we see higher and higher standards and 2016 is no exception. I look forward to presenting this award which will be rightly deserved by the winner."
- Jane Jones, Deputy Managing Director, NOCN

The NOCN award will be presented by Jane at the AoC Conference on Wednesday night, 16 November 2016.

NOCN is also exhibiting at the Conference and will be speaking to delegates about their plans for the apprenticeship reforms which roll out in 2017.
