This is normally the time of year that we would be welcoming you and your guests to our graduation ceremonies in Falkirk and Stirling in order to celebrate your success and the achievement of your qualifications.  Whilst we are unable to hold these events this year due to the current health crisis, we still wanted to take this opportunity to mark the occasion and provide you with a token to acknowledge this milestone in your learning journey. It should never be underestimated just what it means for our students to get to this stage and the true sense of achievement that this should bring to all of you.

You should all be exceptionally proud of what you have achieved over the past year and we wish you every success in your next steps. 

We've sent out graduation packs which include a ceremony booklet, commemorative certificate and a card from the Principal to each of our graduates this year. Even though we can't be there with you to celebrate - we'd love to hear what you're up to! 

Be sure to tag us in your graduation celebrations #FVCGrad2020
