Walsall College graduates have paraded proudly to the town hall, donned in their caps and gowns, to celebrate their newfound degrees.

One hundred students marched through Walsall town centre during their graduation parade, with Town Crier Cyril Richardson as their front man. Leading the procession, he bellowed about their successes on higher education courses. 

Upon teaming up with the renowned Birmingham City University, it was only last year that Walsall College decided to offer full degree level courses. Some 450 guests were in the vicinity, comprising family, friends, lecturers, and a number of happy students. 

All graduates were presented with certificates for successes on courses such as computing, business, creative industries, professional development, public services hospitality management and health to name but a few. The ceremony also played host to a guest speaker, Damian Addis, a graduate student himself who succeeded in gaining his Higher National Diploma in Photography.

Mr Addis gave a motivating speech about his experience studying at the college and how it has helped him to pursue his dream job as a photographer. His impressive portfolio features a number of high-end clients including Homebase and Habitat.

Walsall College’s principal and chief executive Jatinder Sharma said the ceremony is a celebration of high achievers that have become role models in their communities.

He went on to add that the students have achieved what they set out to accomplish and that they should be extremely proud of their triumphs. 

“I speak on behalf of everybody when I wish them every success in the future,” he said.

Walsall College aims to give students the best possible programme from which to learn successful skills that will later help shape their careers.

Once graduates collected their honours, they went on to celebrate at the college’s main Wisemore Campus, with afternoon tea and live music.

Grad Plus has a broad range of graduate electronic engineering jobs as well as roles in accountancy, finance and other fields
