Will Awards Week move away from Trentham Gardens?

Question:

I’m very much looking forward to graduation this year at Trentham Gardens, especially  this year, (subject to the award board)  I will be collecting my Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) award. 

Do the executive team have any plans to move future graduation ceremonies away from Trentham Gardens?

Answer:

This year will be the first Graduation Week that our new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Michael Gunn, has attended since taking up his post. Naturally, Michael will want to see how Trentham Gardens works out for himself before considering any changes for the future.

Obviously the University has to be mindful of how its uses its resources and the Awards Planning Team constantly strive to ensure best value for money. For instance we retendered for the marquees this year and made a considerable saving on previous years.

We will keep you updated of any changes down the line, thank you.
