The higher education and professional studies graduates, representing countries from all over the world, were presented with certificates by the college’s principal and CEO Garry Phillips and the evening’s commencement speaker Tim Campbell on Wednesday last week (November 12).
Mr Campbell, who gained prominence as Lord Sugar’s first apprentice and received an MBE for Enterprise Culture in 2012, delivered a speech about his path to success and offered advice to the graduates about to start their careers.
The ceremony included the annual presentation of the Ministry of Defence award in recognition of the student who has shown outstanding levels of commitment and tenacity during their studies. This year’s award went to business student Farina Akhtar.
Health and social care graduate Joana Henao said: “It was fantastic studying with such a diverse group of students and the college’s smaller class sizes mean you can get really involved in the class.”
Principal and Chief Executive Garry Phillips said: “I am proud of all our graduates’ efforts and achievements in successfully completing their courses. Their achievements represent a significant amount of commitment and dedication over the years, and it has been a privilege to support and encourage them along the way.”
The celebration was attended by MP for Ealing North Steve Pound , the Mayor of Ealing Councillor Tej Ram Bagha and several local council members.
