November 2021 saw the long-awaited Coventry graduation ceremony held at the historic Coventry Cathedral for the students of the CTH Level 6 Professional Diploma.

This important event had been postponed earlier in the year due to Covid, but last November graduates were able to don their cap and gown to receive their Bachelor’s degree alongside their CTH Level 6 Professional Diploma. After the ceremony, graduates were able to continue celebrations by gathering in the University Hub.

A number of students had travelled back to the UK from overseas to attend the ceremony, but unfortunately there were many more who had to remain at home due to global travel restrictions. Marion Greenhalgh, Head of Curriculum for Business at CU Coventry, said:

To get both a degree and a professional qualification is a great achievement, but to complete your studies and achieve your qualification amidst a global pandemic is outstanding. We are very proud of them all and await to hear of their next adventure as they move ahead with their careers!

Sameena Miah, one of the Class of 2021 students, who had a delayed graduation from Summer 2020, said:

Since graduating, I have a full-time position as a People Operation Coordinator with Arc Hospitality. I manage the Midlands office in Birmingham and cover their client requests for the region. My role requires me to hold recruitment presentations and induction sessions twice a week and to liaise with clients and team members. In addition, I have to oversee our legal compliance, for example ensuring I have the correct Right to Work documents for my staff out in the workplace.
My office covers a wide geographical area, including Birmingham, Coventry, Nottingham, Leicester and Cardiff, so it is always busy! We provide professional staffing for all sorts of hospitality and events, such as horse racing meetings, Premier League football events, Christmas parties, the British Grand Prix, as well as providing staff for Amadeus (the catering organisation supplying the ICC, Resorts World, the NEC, Utilita Arena and the VOX).

It is great to see CTH students like Sameena achieving their CTH Level 6 Professional qualification and going on to perform key roles in the hospitality sector. The ‘Class of 2021’ worldwide have had a tough start due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, but at CTH we know they will go on to play their part in the resurgence of the hospitality and tourism sector around the globe!
