TV presenter and science writer Alice Roberts has been announced as keynote speaker at the forthcoming Central Qualifications (CQ) graduation and awards ceremony.

Hard work

Taking place on 10 June at Central Hall in Westminster, London, the ceremony is a celebration of the hard work and achievements of the VNs who have qualified during the course of the academic year.

Together with honoured members of their teaching teams, graduates will be presented with ceremonial CQ badges and scrolls while their family and friends look on.

Inspiring talk

Renowned anatomist and biological anthropologist Prof Roberts will then take to the podium, where she is set to give an inspirational speech to the graduates as they embark on the next exciting stage of their career paths.

CQ said it was “delighted” the science presenter – who has appeared on TV show such as Coast, Time Team, Horizon, The Incredible Human Journey and Prehistoric Autopsy – would be joining it in London, and that it would be announcing additional qualifications for VNs later this year.
