Your brand will be at the forefront of the ceremony from July 2020 to the end of the year.

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

The 2019 event enjoyed extensive social media engagement and exposure across traditional and broadcast media.
