It was a first for Chesterfield College when more than 100 proud graduates celebrated at the Crooked Spire, after a procession through the town centre.
Over 200 guests were there to see the students receive their qualifications, which ranged from Foundation degrees to Advanced Professional Diplomas.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield, Chesterfield College Principal Judith McArthur, Professor John Coyne (Vice Chancelloe at the University of Derby), Michelle Fraser (Associate Dean at Leeds Metropolitan University) and Clive Macdonald (Director of Students and Learning at Sheffield Hallam University), accompanied the parade which was led by the Ireland Colliery Band.
After the ceremony students were treated to tea, coffee and cakes organised and served by College Public Service students.
