Northumberland College celebrated the success of more than 1,000 students and apprentices at graduation ceremonies last week.

Six events took place at the college’s Kirkley Hall campus where both students and apprentices were applauded by family, friends, employers and tutors for their achievements during the past year. Awards were also given to students who had excelled in their studies or gone above and beyond requirements to develop themselves and fellow students.

At the college’s higher-education ceremony, British national champion, Craig McCann, who is ranked number one in paracycling as well as wheelchair fencing, presented graduates with awards.
