A huge congratulations to students from Early Childhood, Social Studies, Career Development and Coaching Studies and Career Education, Information and Guidance in HE, on completing their studies!
While we were sad that we were unable to physically celebrate Winter Graduation this year, it was lovely to celebrate online with a few of our students.
Here, Gill Frigerio, Associate Professor, Career Studies and Coaching Programmes, congratulates our students on their achievements.
"Congratulations to all the students who were given awards at our November exam boards, whether it be a Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring, a Postgrad Award in Careers Leadership or a Masters in Career Development and Coaching Studies! We were delighted to be able to mark the occasion with some students on Monday, in lieu of the actual graduation ceremonies for MA graduates that would have taken place this week. We heard from students who have been awarded PG Certificates, Diplomas and MAs about their learning from the course and how they are taking creative and innovative steps in their practice as a result. We have all been working in challenging circumstances over the last year and for these students to have concluded their studies in this period is an even bigger achievement. Well done everyone!"
A mother of four from Yardley Wood in Birmingham, who left school at 15, has graduated from the University of Warwick with a degree in Social Studies.
Graduation is a special time for our CLL students. For many, it can be a goal that they previously would have never imagined. For some, it is an achievement that at times, seemed out of reach.
Final year, 2+2 Degree Pathway student Emma has had an eventful year. From awards evenings, working events, to receiving the results for her degree – the mother of four caught up with the Centre to reflect on the final year of her studies.
