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. The return to the formal ceremony at the cathedral in 2022 was hugely successful with record numbers of apprentices, employers and training providers all helping create a wonderful occasion for our amazing apprentices. The 2023 Ceremony took things a step further with 40% more apprentices registered, 30 training providers involved and 100 employers engaged!

Our sponsors made it possible for apprentices to enjoy their graduation free with no extra costs and free gowning and photography! Be part of this fantastic event in 2024 and show your support for future generations.

The ceremony will bring together apprentices, friends and family, employers, providers, key stakeholders and VIPs from across the county, even nationally, 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 but also be recorded and available for post event sharing.

Harnessing the combined power of partner marketing platforms, your organisation will benefit from extensive promotion on websites, emails, social media and direct marketing. Your brand will be at the forefront of the ceremony from our digital launch in February/March during National Apprenticeship Week, right up to the event and to the end of the year.
