Graduation celebrations at CAFRE’s Enniskillen Campus

FOUNDATION Degree in Equine Management graduates, from the classes of 2020 and 2021, recently celebrated graduation success at The College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) at a small scale event.

Seamus McAlinney, Head of Equine at Enniskillen Campus, welcomed CAFRE Director, Martin McKendry; Professor Aine McKillop Associate Dean, Faculty of Life and Health Sciences at Ulster University and Jane Elliott, Equine Higher Education Programme Manager at CAFRE to lead in the ceremony.

In his address to the students, Mr McKendry said that: “Today’s ceremony is a special opportunity to celebrate your achievements in person in the presence of your friends and family. Despite the challenges of remote learning and online assessments, you have reached a significant milestone along the path of knowledge and learning and you should be very proud of your achievements.”

Mr McKendry continued saying that: “The NI equine industry has real potential to develop and make a more significant contribution to the local economy. Enniskillen Campus is well placed to play a pivotal role in the realisation of that potential through the provision of highly qualified and capable people as seen here today. I have no doubt that the education and training, which you have received at Enniskillen Campus, will place you in a very strong position to compete successfully in a tough marketplace.”

The 2020 and 2021 Foundation Degree in Equine Management graduates are now members of the CAFRE Alumni.

Seamus McAlinney, Head of Campus encouraged graduates to: “Consider their qualification as a stepping stone along a lifelong journey of education and learning.”
