Seven Hills co-founder, Michael Hayman, will be at Norwich Cathedral tomorrow for City College Norwich’s annual Graduation ceremony, celebrating the achievements of over 300 further education students.
Three hundred and sixty graduands will be attending the ceremonies to receive their awards, which will be presented by Michael Hayman and Guest of Honour Danny Kerry, Head Coach of the women’s Olympic hockey team.
This year sees the highest ever number of first class honours degrees achieved by City College Norwich students, with 38 achieving this distinction. The overall success rate for the College’s higher education students continues to be impressive, with 64% of honours degrees this year being First class honours or 2(1)s.
The Graduation ceremony, now in its eighteenth year at Norwich Cathedral, will see higher level qualifications awarded to students who have completed a wide range of vocational, academic and professional courses at the College. These include Masters degrees, Honours degrees and Foundation degrees, as well as qualifications from professional bodies.
Michael Hayman will be presenting parchments in health, social care, early education, humanities, business, management and the creative arts during the afternoon ceremony.
Michael will also be presenting two other special awards. BA (Hons) Psychology in Society graduate Solange Cross will be presented with the College’s Higher Education Student of the Year Award, in recognition both of her outstanding academic success and her contribution in supporting and inspiring others through her passion for learning. John Brydon, who served as Clerk to the College’s Corporation Board from 2000 to 2010, as well as more recently working for The Governors at City Academy Norwich, will be presented with an Honorary Doctorate in recognition of his services to education and to the community.
