Central Qualifications (CQ) held its annual graduation ceremony at the weekend to celebrate those qualifying in the academic year.

Nurses wore gowns and a hood in CQ colours

The ceremony saw graduates receive their CQ badges and presentation scrolls, before receiving a motivational talk from Benjamin Mee, author of the best-selling book We Bought a Zoo

Mr Mee spoke about how he came to be the owner of Dartmoor Zoo after he and his family came across a wildlife park in huge financial difficulties. 

He also talked of his surprise when approached by Hollywood producers who wanted to make a film based on the book, and his subsequent meetings with actor Matt Damon.

Accompanied by their family, friends and members of their teaching teams, the nurses wore gowns and a hood trimmed in CQ colours. More than 130 people attended the ceremony at Central Hall, Westminster.

Of the event, CQ quality assurance manager Denise Burke said: “Our graduation ceremony is a significant event in CQ’s calendar and this year’s event was another proud moment for CQ. Everyone has worked hard to get their qualification and we were delighted to celebrate the students’ success alongside their tutors, families and friends and we wish all our graduates every success in their future careers.”
