    The Bermuda College Ceremony is tomorrow


Bermuda College is to celebrate its students’ achievements at its annual commencement ceremony tomorrow.

The ceremony will also see the first group of 16 graduates from the certificate of applied technology programme.

All the graduates were dual enrolment students from the Berkeley Institute or CedarBridge Academy.

Dr Trescot Wilson, Dean of the Division of Business Administration, Hospitality and Technical Education, said: “Technical and vocation education is the way of the future to enhance sustained development in any country.

“The certificate in applied science & technology at Bermuda College serves many purposes.

“For some, they offer opportunities to further their careers and earning power. For others, they offer careers in hands-on industries which do not require traditional four-year academic training.

“For still others, they offer a way to enrich the high school experience, prepare for college and earn college credits, all at the same time.

“I can attest to the fact that these 16 graduates have already shortened their freshman year, earned college credits from an accredited institution, have become familiar with college-level expectations and performance, and have learnt how to be accountable.”

There are 124 graduates this year, 54 per cent of them with honours.

MP for Devonshire East Christopher Famous, a graduate of the Bermuda College automotive certificate programme, will deliver the commencement address.

The ceremony will be held at 2pm on the college field in Paget.
