Higher Education graduation ceremony to be held at the New York Stadium for the second year running
The RNN Group of Colleges, which include Rotherham College, North Notts College, Dearne Valley College and University Centre Rotherham (UCR), will be hosting its second Higher Education graduation ceremony at Rotherham United’s AESSEAL New York Stadium on the 18th November.
This highly anticipated event is set to accommodate hundreds of proud families who will be watching the learners from the 2021-2022 cohort receive their certificates. There are two ceremonies during the day and each will be followed by a celebration of all these students from Rotherham College, North Notts College and Dearne Valley College, and University Centre Rotherham.
The Mayor and Consort of Rotherham, accompanied by the Deputy Mayor and Consort of Rotherham will be in attendance on the day of celebration. We are also delighted to share that Howard Webb will be the guest speaker for both ceremonies. Howard Webb, born and raised in Rotherham, is a former Premier League and FIFA international football referee and from December this year will become Head of Refereeing for the Premier League and English Football League.
