[C]arlisle College has held their annual Higher Education Graduation Ceremony to celebrate the achievement, commitment and dedication of learners whom have completed university level courses at the College this academic year.
Carlisle College has partnered with leading organisations such as UCLan, AAT and Pearson to bring higher education courses right to the doorstep of local learners, in areas including computing, engineering, teaching, business and accounting.
The graduation event, which was held earlier this month at Carlisle Cathedral, was attended by over 150 guests who looked on as graduates were welcomed to the stage and presented with scrolls by Carlisle College Principal Grant Glendinning.
Prizes for Achievement were presented to a student from each of the graduating subject areas. Max Johnstone received the award for computing having consistently shown excellent academic achievement and dedication to his studies. As well as attaining a distinction, Max also received the highest average percentage mark for learners studying Computing not only for Carlisle College, but across all of the UCLan partnership colleges.
From September 2018, Carlisle College will be offering a BSc Computing top-up degree, allowing new and current foundation degree learners to complete a full degree in Computing, developed by the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences at UCLan.
Grant Glendinning, Principal at Carlisle College said, “The commitment and dedication shown by our learners has been outstanding, it has been an absolute pleasure to celebrate the achievements of our students and I am immensely proud of them all. We often find that studying a University Level course close to home is the financially sensible option, whilst also allowing studies to fit around other commitments such as employment, looking after children or caring for others, which means the achievements of our graduates is even more deserving. I am also aware that many of our graduates will be staying in the locality, which is a real boost for Cumbria.”
With qualifications in teaching, engineering, business, accounting and computing, the university level courses provided at Carlisle College are designed with future careers in mind and delivered by tutors who are industry professionals and are able to share their insight and experience.
Based on local market needs, the courses have been designed with input from business – a combination that makes Carlisle College graduates highly sought after by employers.
