A WISBECH training centre held an awards evening to celebrate the success of its first crop of students.

The town's mayor, Councillor David Oliver, was on hand to present students of Cambridgeshire Training and Consultancy with their certificates.

The students took the University of Cambridge Skills for Life Citizenship and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) exams.

As an accredited examination centre with the University of Cambridge, the Norfolk Street centre achieved a pass rate of 93 per cent - seven per cent above the average pass rate.

From the outset of the business it was the intention of company joint director Kareem Al-Ghazo to become a centre with the University of Cambridge so students could obtain an internationally recognised qualification rather than a national qualification.

Mr Al-Ghazo said: "This is was an excellent start for CTC and we now have our second set of courses running."
