The Apprentice Graduation is the county's annual ceremony recognising the incredible achievement of our apprentices. The graduation ceremony is free to graduates and recognises apprentices at all levels. It provides a wonderful and important opportunity for apprentices to be recognised equally to their peers undertaking other forms of education and training, including university graduates.
We have hit a new record in 2023 achieving our maximum event capacity of 200 apprentices. We have even had to operate a waiting list of over 40 apprentices this year! It will be great to share this wonderful event with you.
