"I’m proud of them all and I’m excited about the future as we look forward to next year.
"I’m passionate about ensuring Humber UTC not only provides a great education but also a very strong pathway to a fantastic career.
"Seeing so many of our industry partners here is a demonstration of how valuable the UTC is to local employers. It’s been great to be able to thank everyone for their continued support."
Writer, speaker and broadcaster Richard Askam gave a speech at the event, speaking about his successful career working with global brands.
