Electrical and electronics graduate Mike Rumney (rear) was more than happy to jump on a tandem behind his tutor Steven Corner after graduating with an HNC.
“I suppose you could say that is what I did when I enrolled at Darlington College after being made redundant from a council social care job – I jumped on my bike,” said the 45-year-old, of Darlington. “I retrained at Darlington College and now work there.”
Senior lecturer in mechatronics and electrical engineering Mr Corner said: “He was the best student in his year and is now doing a brilliant job for the college blending his old skills with his new qualifications.”
