The range of subjects included engineering, technology, health and social care, teaching and education, as well as business management.

Friends and family were present at the ceremony as well as a number of local dignitaries and invited guests including the mayor and mayoress of Carlisle and the city’s MP.

Among the recipients was Tina Harvey, a 36-year-old from Cliburn near Penrith, who was awarded a post-graduate certificate in education.

She said that she had already started her teaching career and was currently working for both the college and the University of Cumbria in the Carlisle and Lancaster campuses.

Tina also praised her lecturer, Paolo Reale, who she said was “inspirational” and added:“If I am anywhere near as good as him I will be a good teacher.”

Fellow student Tiffany McCormick, a 22-year-old from Silloth, gained a foundation degree in health and social care. She said she was hoping to study for an honours degree next before going travelling to gain some “life experience”.

She added: “I hope to work in the public sector trying to educate people to be healthier.”

College principal Moira Tattersall OBE said that the students had done “incredibly well” and added: “A lot of the students don’t come back for the award ceremony. Each year the level of achievement gets better and better.”

She said that it was good to see a smile on each graduate’s face as they stepped forward to receive their award and added: “It never ceases to amaze me what a wonderful feeling that is.”

David Carter, a college governor, said it was important for students to think of a career that they wanted to pursue and then work towards the appropriate qualifications.

He said: “You may change your mind but initially think of a career.”

He added that the range of subjects represented at the ceremony would give the students a good start for their careers.
