Under normal circumstances, at this time of year we would be looking forward to our annual Graduation Ceremony at The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, which was booked for Friday 16 October.
It is without doubt one of our favourite events at CVQO, where we celebrate the achievements of our adult learners along with their friends, families and representatives from the Armed Forces and world of education.
After consultation and aligning ourselves with current government guidance, we are disappointed to have to postpone the event until 2021. This decision was not made lightly, however with such uncertainty surrounding us at present we cannot move forward with a large-scale public event and risk the safety of our learners and staff.
We know this will be a sad announcement, particularly as so many of our adult learners have dedicated time during lockdown to either complete or enrol on a City & Guilds, ILM or BTEC Level 3 qualification.
The good news is that we are moving ahead with plans for the 2021 Graduation Ceremony and, depending on numbers, may even run more than one event to make sure all of our adult learners have the chance to celebrate in a safe and responsible way.
For now, please be assured that we will be in touch as soon as we can with further news, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you need to in the meantime.
