I was gutted to find out that DPG no longer hold their graduation ceremony as they have recently changed learning provider and they do not offer it.

Just wondered how anyone else feels about this.

  • Really annoyed about it if I'm honest Carly, but no one at DPG is bothered.

    I appreciate some student won't mind but, I never went to university and that's something I've regretted. Doing my Level 7 knowing I would get the opportunity to 'graduate', wear a cap and gown and celebrate that with my family meant a great deal to me, and was a huge selling point in choosing to study with DPG. It attracted many to choose DPG - then they've just taken it away with no thought or consideration on the wider impact.

    I understand in light of the pandemic wanting to 'cost save', and change how things are done. But I find it extremely disappointing (and unfair) that they have disregarded everyone enrolled before the decision was made, and failed to even communicate it! I had to email to ask and that's how I found out. I'm pretty sure the cost of the graduation is rolled up in the cost of the course too so, technically I think the decision they've made has been in poor taste and handled poorly too.


    • Yeah. I would have like to have attended the graduation ceremony.

      Am disappointed it will not be happening.

    • I didnt even know about this, would you be able to wear a cap and gown for this?  I wonder if that was the same for level 5 (wearing the cap and gown) and ceremony? 

      It does seem unfair to remove this, why not hold thier own?
