DEGREE OF SUCCESS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
Former students from City of Wolverhampton College who went on to do degrees at the University of Wolverhampton will be donning caps and gowns for their graduation ceremony this Friday (September 18).
Thirty students – who studied for foundation degrees in supporting children in primary education and early years service at the college – progressed to study for BA (Hons) degrees in childhood and family studies or special needs and inclusion studies at the university and will be graduating at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.
Joining them at the ceremony will be college tutors Nikki Palmer, curriculum manager for early years education, and Sue Gilbride, lecturer in child studies, who both taught the students on the foundation degree programme.
Nikki said: “We are extremely proud of all our former students who showed great dedication and commitment to studying and to progressing to complete full degrees at university.
“Some of the students first joined the college to do their Level 3 early years qualifications a number of years ago, before progressing to the foundation degree programme, and it will be wonderful to see them all receive their degrees and the recognition they truly deserve.”
The graduation ceremony takes place at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre at 1.30pm.
