A proud contingent of graduates descended upon our Coalville campus on Friday 2nd November for the college's annual Graduation and Awards Ceremony.

Attendees were welcomed to the ceremony with an address from Principal and Chief Executive Dr. Nigel Leigh OBE before guest speaker John Doherty, Chief Executive of Loughborough College. Director of Quality Simon Kibble then proceeded to host the ceremony.

Those studying a range of higher education courses were recognised throughout the night, each graduate was called up onto the stage for a special moment of recognition where they received their traditional graduation scroll from Dr. Leigh OBE and posed for an official photograph.

Following the graduation portion of the evening a number of outstanding students were recognised with awards for their academic excellence being awarded a congratulatory gift and framed certificate.
