Well done to our Higher Education Class of 2019!

Well done to our Higher Education Class of 2019!

Graduation celebrations returned to Redcar today as students gowned up to mark the culmination of all their hard work.

A magnificent 48 students paraded from the college to the Redcar Community Heart in a celebratory display for all of the community to see.

Campus Principal Jason Faulkner said: “This is only the second time that the college has seen its higher education students graduating in a dedicated ceremony here in the town where they study.

“It is and should be a proud moment, not just for the students, their family, friends, teachers and staff at the college, but also for the whole community.”

Among those picking up their qualifications was BA (Hons) Education and Training graduate, Rachel. The Skelton mum said: “I never believed I would be able to complete a full degree but through the course I found a confidence I didn’t know that I had.”

Successfully passing a foundation degree in supporting teaching and learning before topping up to the honors degree this year, she managed to fit her studies around a full-time job as a teaching assistant.

Asked to be valedictory speaker at the Redcar ceremony, it has been a busy year for Rachel who saw the arrival of her 19-week old daughter, Poppy, just one week after handing in her dissertation. “I think she must have known,” said the proud mum.

Redcar and Cleveland College offers a variety of foundation degree and degree programmes, many delivered in partnership with Teesside University.

Professor Mark Simpson, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching) at Teesside University, said: “Our Teesside University College Partnership was formalised 18 months ago and all partners have demonstrated a commitment to continue to expand, develop and innovate together in order to provide first class education and training to students on a wide range of academic courses.

“Those graduating this week have shown a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication and they should all be extremely proud of their achievements.”

Welcoming the graduation ceremony to the town, Leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, Councillor Mary Lanigan, said: “We’re delighted that Redcar and Cleveland College is once again hosting this ceremony in our wonderful town. The college is an asset to our community and it’s inspiring to see so many people celebrating their achievements. I wish them the best of luck with their future endeavours.”

Redcar and Cleveland College is a part of the Education Training Collective.
