Byline: LAWRENCE VOS Public Relations and Press Officer, Learning and Skills Council Coventry and Warwickshire

The seven students including Surekha Atwal, 20 from Stoke and Charlene Scott, 22 from Bell Green, were presented with their HND awards by MP Bob Ainsworth at a special graduation ceremony.

Programme manager Tony Harrison said: "The two-year course is extremely challenging but all the students have worked very diligently and they are all now moving onto degree programmes in related subjects.

"We even have students joining the second year of degree programmes in Criminology and Forensic Psychology.
