About the Event
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.
The inaugural Kent and Medway event was held in 2019 at Rochester Cathedral. The 2020 and 2021 ceremonies were virtual events, but we are pleased that the next graduation ceremony will again return to Rochester Cathedral on 14th October 2022.
