Congratulations to UWTSD's first cohort of BA Advocacy graduates


02.07.2018

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is delighted to offer congratulations to the first cohort of students in Wales and the UK to graduate with a BA in Advocacy.

Louise Davies, Savannah Lowndes and Peter Williams received their awards during a ceremony at the university’s Carmarthen campus this afternoon.

UWTSD’s Phillip Morgan, Programme Director for: MA Advocacy, said : “These student graduates have grown with the programme from its beginning to its established position as an integral part of the range of programmes offered to applicants. They are a credit to their profession graduating as the first of many to study towards Advocacy Excellence in Wales. “

Louise said: “I decided to study advocacy as this is something I have always had passion towards. I would love to support vulnerable individuals; to be a voice for them and I found completing this degree has offered me a good background knowledge and experience of advocacy.

Savannah said: “I decided to study advocacy as the subject is something I have particularly been passionate about. The degree in advocacy was the perfect way for me to gain excellent knowledge and experience in the chosen field. The degree in Advocacy has helped me to gain knowledge and understanding of Advocacy in more depth. My three years at UWTSD have provided me with an excellent learning environment to undertake my studies.

I would highly recommend individuals who are passionate about advocacy to undertake the three year degree in Advocacy. This degree will offer students excellent knowledge and understanding before working in the field, students can then apply the knowledge and skills they have learnt when undertaking advocacy after graduating. I have now decided to undertake my PCET in order to gain more knowledge and become a lecturer in advocacy in the future.”

Peter said: “I am delighted to have graduated from this course, the first of its kind in the UK. I originally moved onto this course from a certificate course, which again was the first one in the UK. I currently work as a children’s advocate and I found the course very helpful in my chosen career of advocacy.”

Phillip Morgan added: “Their success has only been possible with hard work, support and a confidence in delivering this ‘flagship’ programme. The delivery team have been outstanding in the realisation of these programmes. As I take these courses forward in my new voluntary role as Independent Director for the new West Wales Advocacy Resilience Hub across the Three Counties I am confident that more established professionals and those new to advocacy will enrol on both the BA and MA Advocacy programmes.”
