Gown-ing glory for HoW College students


Heart of Worcestershire College (HoW College) students showcased their ‘gown-ing’ glory last week as they marked the end of their higher education studies at the College’s annual graduation ceremony.

Taking place in the historic and picturesque setting of Worcester Cathedral, the students graduated in a range of subjects including Accountancy, Business, Engineering, Computing, Human Resources, Law, Marketing, Media and Games Development, Social Work and Sport.

The students received their awards from Principal Stuart Laverick, Chair of the Corporation Neill Bucktin and the Directors of their respective courses. Also in attendance were guest speakers Andrew Grant, Deputy Lieutenant and Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Revd Alvyn Pettersen and Councillor Steve Mackay, the Right Worshipful Mayor of Worcester.

Speaking about his time at the College, Level 5 Chartered Management Institute graduate, Chris Watling said:

“The CMI course at HoW College has been enriching and empowering. It has allowed me to develop my skills and has opened up amazing opportunities for me within the workplace and I now get to travel abroad as part of my role.”

Rhys Curran, Foundation Degree in Sport graduate, added:

“I have really enjoyed the course; the tutors have been amazing and extremely supportive. The course itself is very hands-on and practical which has helped me get a job as a Multi-Skills Coach at Football Fun Camps.”

Speaking about the graduates’ success, Principal and Chief Executive Stuart Laverick, said:

“We are extremely proud to have so many students graduating from Heart of Worcestershire College this year. Each student has demonstrated an exceptional level of dedication and hard work which is reflected in their successful grades. We wish each and every one of them the best of luck with their future careers.”
