Kent and Medway Apprenticeship Graduation organising partners and supporting key stakeholders are delighted to be arranging the third Kent and Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony. It will be a virtual event which builds on 2020’s success.

The ceremony will bring together apprentices, employers, providers and stakeholders from across the county 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. Your sponsorship is vital in enabling us to offer the event free of charge to the apprentices and their supporters.

Sponsoring the Kent and Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony offers a fantastic opportunity to position your brand alongside a high profile and comprehensively marketed event that champions apprenticeships, skills and small businesses in the county.

Harnessing the combined power of partner marketing platforms including KATO, FSB, Kent County Council, Medway Council and the Careers and Enterprise Company, means you will benefit from extensive promotion on websites, emails, social media and direct marketing. Your brand will be at the forefront of the ceremony from July 2021 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 Minister for Small Businesses and FSB National Chair Mike Cherry OBE presented certificates to apprentices from a range of local and national firms.

The 2020 virtual event, although very different from the previous year due to the challenges of the global pandemic, enjoyed extensive social media engagement and exposure across traditional and broadcast media.

Be a part of this fantastic event and show your support for future generations.
