Graduation of Foundation degree Students

Dr Barbara Bassot from the Centre for Career and Personal Development (CCPD) went to share in the celebrations as nine students graduated from the Working with Young People and Young People's Services Foundation degree course recently.  In a ceremony held at Augustine House the students received their Foundation degree certificates and celebrated afterwards with their friends and families.

Dr Bassot said:  "This is another group of successful students from CCPD and it is a delight to see them reach their goal."

The students  studied  the Foundation degree (designed for those without the usual entry requirements for a degree) and achieved the qualification after two years part-time study on a range of subjects on different aspects of working with young people. These students can now continue for a further year study and achieve a full BA Hons degree in Supporting Young People.

The Centre for Career and Personal Development at CCCU runs two of these popular Foundation degree courses, part-time, in Stockwell and Essex.  Another course may be starting in Kent shortly.

One of the group said:

"We studied many topics to do with our work.  It was all  interesting and well-taught and it has really helped me to develop as a professional in my work with young people."

Another said after the ceremony:  "I never thought I'd ever end up with a degree.  I feel so proud today."
