Northumberland College has celebrated the success of more than 1,000 students and apprentices at a series of graduation ceremonies.

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 those 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 Katie Bulmer-Cooke, from The Apprentice, presented graduates with awards and talked about how her determination played a major part in building a successful business.
