Career Academy Graduation - April 2017

On Wednesday 5th April, the Franklin College 2nd year Career Academy students attend their Graduation Ceremony.

The event praised the progress and successes of the students over their time with the Career Ready programme. We also looked at the many opportunities the students were given over the course of the programme such as various trips, masterclasses and summer internships at local companies including North East Lincolnshire Council, Shoreline, Lloyds Bank and Diana Princess of Wales Hospital.

Trevor Wray hosted the event, accompanied by many student guest speakers such as Rebecca Hepworth and George Groves of the STEM Academy, Lauren Parrott of the Business Academy, Callum King of the Logistics Academy and Parisa Toutounchi of the Law Academy.

Each student spoke of their time on the programme and the different opportunities and benefits they have gained during the programme.

Guest speakers also included David Heath of Clugstons Logistics who spoke about his time as a Mentor and how he helped his student to progress and succeed. He also spoke about how he felt he had benefitted from being a part of the programme.

Cameron Barber, ex Business Academy student and Sir Winfried Bischoff award winner also spoke at the event about his time with Career Ready and how it has helped him to succeed further on in life. Cameron is now at Nottingham University and has recently secured a year-long paid placement at PWC accountancy firm in London.

At the end of the ceremony, students were each awarded their graduation certificates and congratulated for their hard work and successes during the course of the programme.

Well done to all of our graduating Career Academy students!
