The Awards night on 5th December will celebrate the businesses shortlisted in all categories that have significantly contributed to the Sheffield region, and announce the final winner of each award.
In the last three years the NOCN Group has increased its workforce by 325%, partly due to the acquisition of Cskills Awards of which it managed to retain all jobs in the process and continues to deliver 4,000 construction apprenticeships a year, but also the merger with One Awards and the development of NOCN Job Cards and NOCN India Skills Foundation.

Through the diversification of products and services, NOCN has been able to invest in new offices, systems and the larger skilled workforce. With the objective to drive the business forward, NOCN will continue working with governments and employers across the world to improve the social mobility of learners and develop markets in India, China, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Malaysia and Indonesia.
