Our Awards focus on learners, and the people and organisations that have enabled innovative and often life-changing learning to take place in many diverse venues throughout our region and beyond.

The specific Award categories aim to highlight individuals, educational providers and community organisations that achieve, innovate and strive for excellence in education.

By recognising, rewarding and publicising these endeavours and achievements, One Awards aims to raise awareness of the high quality of education that has continued to be delivered throughout the region during the last 25 years. Through our merge into NOCN Group in 2018, we now have many members outside of the North East and they will also have the opportunity to be recognised in this celebration.
