NOCN Boss Judges Diversity awards

Graham Hasting-Evans, NOCN MD, has been chosen to judge the next NCFD FE Sector Awards:

“The NCFD FE Sector Awards are a great way to celebrate the outstanding work in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion across the Sector. I am really pleased to be part of the judging panel and look forward to receiving the nominations”
Said Graham.

Last year NOCN won ‘Awarding Body of the Year’ so it is nice to be on the other side of the judging process and to be able to recognise excellence in this area in other organisations.

NOCN’s accreditation process as a Leader in Diversity continues with 97 responses received back at NCFD. If you haven’t yet responded to your invitation for feedback, please do so as it will help enormously to ensure the quality of NOCN’s service.
