The fifth Kent and Medway Graduation Ceremony will take place on Friday, 20th October at Rochester Cathedral. The fourth Kent and Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony, took place on Friday 14th October 2022. We were delighted to have returned to a formal ceremony similar to 2019's inaugural ceremony at Rochester Cathedral. The 2022 ceremony saw a 70% increase in graduates participating and we are keen that the 2023 ceremony will be bigger still. Join with us and be part of Kent & Medway's most inclusive apprenticeship celebration!


We would love to celebrate with even more apprentices in 2023 as there are over 9,000 apprentices in learning every year in the county. 


If you are, or know an apprentice who will complete and achieve their apprenticeship between 1st August 2022 and 31st July 2023, now is the time to consider them becoming one of our graduates via our easy two-step nomination and registration process.


Apprentice Registration - Registration will open in February 2023 and will close 5pm 1st September 2023


All it takes to start the process is an initial registration by an employer, training provider or apprentice using our Registration portal. If you are unsure of the process or any details required to complete a registration please get in touch via our Contact page or

After a validation confirmation we will keep you informed of relevant event details and next steps for you as an apprentice, employer or provider organisation in the run up to the event. At registration stage it is crucial all information is provided and completed accurately, including the correct name/title of the apprenticeship(s) undertaken. Failure to not provide full and complete details may result in the registration failing.
