PROUD Camborne students were among 500 from across Cornwall College's sites celebrating their successes during a graduation ceremony at Truro Cathedral.

Donning the traditional cap and gown, students received scrolls at the ceremonies to mark the end of their degree studies.

This year, for the first time, three graduation ceremonies took place as 935 students, more than ever, passed degree-level courses, including at Camborne.

Ruth Rockley, from Camborne, who graduated from Duchy College Stoke Climsland with a foundation degree in rescue and emergency management, said: "I'm working in technical rescue as an emergency planning officer, which is exciting and fast-paced.

"I'm planning a year out in the industry and then want to go on and study a master's."

Anne Jolly, from Camborne, who graduated with a degree in renewable energy technologies, said: "I loved my course, everything about it from the great students, to the experienced lecturers."

Jason Smeeth, from Camborne, who graduated with a bachelor's degree in sports performance and coaching, was also given a special award for his commitment on the course. The Cornwall College Camborne student said: "I have been able to use my skills learnt from the course in my current job as a coach at a primary school."

Cornwall College Camborne business graduate, Emily Marks, from Hayle, said: "I'm quite proud to be graduating as I feel like my hard work has paid off.

"I have since been offered a full-time job at Marks & Spencer and hope to be able to progress onto their management training scheme."

Tamsin Ford, a health and community studies graduate from Camborne, said: "I have since started on the bachelor's top-up and am currently talking with Action for Children to go to Parliament to talk about child-neglect law. In the long term I would like to work within domestic violence."
