Graham Hasting-Evans presenting at North Midlands and South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Awards

As a headline sponsor of the #NMSYApprentice18, the NOCN team is excited to attend the awards ceremony tonight in Sheffield.

The awards celebrate and recognise the amazing work carried out by both individuals and organisations involved in apprenticeships, and how they can improve and upskill workforces in various areas within an organisation.

2018 is the second year NOCN has been involved and we are very excited to have had a more prominent involvement with the awards this year with our Managing Director, Graham Hasting-Evans presenting an award and Marketing Manager, James Harkness sitting on the judging panel.

James continues “It was great to see such a high quality of submissions this year, it’s proof that the region has certainly embraced apprenticeships and how they shape our future. I’m looking forward to seeing the winners being announced tonight but having been involved in the judging process I think every finalist deserves recognition of their achievements.”

Along with attending the event, NOCN will be joining the buzz online by tweeting using the event hashtag #NMSYApprentice18. Follow us @NOCN1 to see live updates from our team!
