2020, new changes bring new opportunities!

The Kent & Medway Apprenticeship Graduation is specifically designed for apprentices who have successfully completed their qualifications. The ceremony is not only to celebrate the apprentices but the employers and providers who continue to raise the game within the world of work-based learning.

The ceremony doesn’t limit who can graduate, from level 2 to level 7. The ceremony is designed to raise the profile of apprenticeships whilst giving them an equal footing with the university route to success.

This year’s event is going to be a little different, the Kent & Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony is going VIRTUAL!

The event will be held on a virtual platform, still holding the great aspects that we had last year. Alongside our wonderful hosts, Graduation Attire and amazing guest speakers, we will be honouring each graduate with their certificate and showing their selfies on the job to celebrate their successes. It will be released at 1pm on the 2nd October on the amazing Graduation Attire platform, but it will be shared and saved on our website to watch and re-watch with all the family. Each apprentice and sponsor will be mentioned in the brochure with case studies highlighting some of the amazing successes from the past year.

“Due to COVID-19 we, like so many other people, have had to take a look at future plans and events. Last year we were lucky enough to congratulate 100 apprentices in Rochester Cathedral together with their employers, friends and family but this no longer seem viable. We are determined to continue to show our support of apprenticeships so we are pleased to say we will adapt and hold a virtual celebration on Friday 2 October.”
