RNN Group Celebrates Higher Education Graduation

22 November 2023

The RNN Group, which includes Rotherham College, North Notts College, Dearne Valley College and University Centre Rotherham (UCR), hosted its third Higher Education graduation ceremony at Rotherham United’s AESSEAL New York Stadium last week on Friday 17th November.

This highly anticipated event accommodated hundreds of proud families, staff and organisation partners watching around 150 learners from the 2022-2023 cohort receive their certificates. There were two ceremonies during the day and each was followed by a celebration of all these students from across the four RNN Group campuses.

Representatives from our awarding Universities were in attendance including Dr Julia Holdsworth from Huddersfield University, Neil Hanney from Sheffield Hallam University and Gwyneth Allatt from Hull University.  We were also delighted to hear from Rebecca Jones, CEO of Iprosurv – leaders in Drone Technology – who spoke about her journey, inspiring our graduates with her story and the hard work she put in to achieve global recognition.

Jason Austin, CEO and Principal of the RNN Group said,

“We were delighted to host this year’s Graduation ceremony at the AESSEAL New York Stadium for the third year in a row.

“The occasion marked the achievements of all our students who have worked so hard in the last few years to achieve their qualifications. The graduation is such an important event in the academic calendar.

“The RNN Group are passionate about supporting the local economy and raising the skill levels in our community and we firmly believe in equipping our students with these higher level skills needed to make a difference.”
