Chichester MP gives inspirational graduation speech at Chichester College

Students from Crawley College joined students from Chichester and Brinsbury Colleges at Chichester Cathedral for their graduation ceremony.

The ceremony for the Chichester College Group (CCG) recognised the hard work achievements of students who have competed higher national certificates (HNCs), higher national diplomas (HNDs), foundation degrees and professional qualifications.

The cathedral was packed with family members, staff, governors and guests including Gillian Keegan, MP for Chichester, who gave an inspiring speech which celebrated the importance of Further Education and presented certificates to the graduating class of 2019.

Shelagh Legrave OBE, chief executive of CCG led the ceremony. She said: “For the first time, we came together as a group to celebrate the achievements of our new graduates from all of our colleges. It is always our privilege to see so many students, from different backgrounds and of all different ages, come together and take time to celebrate with each other.“
