Celebration of learner achievement

We hold 2 events to celebrate learner achievement each year. Our Annual Awards evening is where each curriculum area recognises learners’ academic success and commitment to study, whilst our Higher Education (HE) Awards Ceremony (graduation) celebrates those achieving HE qualifications and is a time for our HE learners to celebrate achieving their higher level qualifications with family, friends, college staff and representatives from our partner universities.
