The first Kent and Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony in 2019 was a tremendous success, seeing apprentices from right across the county attend to celebrate their completed apprenticeship in front of family, employers and VIP guests. Rochester Cathedral provided an exclusive and prestigious setting. Guest speakers Kelly Tolhurst MP and Minister for Small Businesses and FSB National Chair Mike Cherry OBE presented certificates to apprentices from a range of local and national firms.

The 2020 and 2021 virtual events, although very different from 2019 due to the challenges of the global pandemic, enjoyed extensive social media engagement and exposure across traditional and broadcast media. The 2021 event was in fact record breaking achieving record apprentice numbers of nearly 300 and engaging 170 employers and 19 training provider organisations.

Be a part of this fantastic event in 2022 and show your support for future generations.

The ceremony will bring together apprentices, their friends and family, employers, providers and stakeholders from across the county to collectively celebrate the apprentices’ success.

 

The event will help encourage more individuals to consider apprenticeships as a valued pathway to a rewarding career and more employers to enhance their businesses by adding apprentices to the workforce. Parents, family members and friends will also be able to watch the event which will stream live but also be recorded and available for post event sharing.

Harnessing the combined power of partner marketing platforms including FSB, Kent County Council, Medway Council, CXK, KATO, Kent Further Education and the Careers and Enterprise Company, means you will benefit from extensive promotion on websites, emails, social media and direct marketing. Your brand will be at the forefront of the ceremony from July 2021 to the end of the year.
