World famous ‘nanny school’ awards first very-own degrees in 130-year history (Somerset Live)
14 April 2022
Norland hosted its first degree awarding ceremonies at the International Convention Centre, Wales on 31 March and 1 April 2022.
Norland awarded its own degrees to graduates for the first time since being granted taught degree awarding powers from the Privy Council in 2019.
Set 41 and Set 42 were the first to proudly wear the new Norland graduation gowns with the symbolic colours of brown, blue and gold.
Norland also unveiled its new coat of arms which features a golden guardian owl overlooking its owlets and the speedwell flower which has been synonymous with Norland’s graduates since the 1900s.
