Graham Hasting-Evans meets Dudley College for International discussion

Graham Hasting-Evans, NOCN Group MD, recently met with Matthew Cadden-Hyde, International Operations Manager for Dudley College, which is an established NOCN Centre. They had a productive discussion around potential collaboration in international markets. Here they are shown in one of the College's new industrial training suites.

Graham said:
"It was great to meet Matthew at Dudley College and to chat about ways we can collaborate overseas. Both our organisations are already doing good work in international markets and it makes sense to find ways to work together for the benefit of learners. Dudley is a fine example of a successful, forward-looking FE college, and I am proud that they are an NOCN Centre."

NOCN is currently working in India, Greece, and America on a range of projects to bring its expertise in qualifications, apprenticeships and assessments to new markets. To learn more, visit:
