Over 50 Advanced Apprenticeships graduated at the Higher Apprenticeships Gradu8 2015 Ceremony at AugustaWestland Conference Centre in Yeovil on Wednesday 13th May which was full of fun, recognition and promise!
It was an exciting event where the Key Note Speakers:
- Graham Cole CBE – Chairman AugustaWestland
- Nigel Fenn – Organisation & Employee Development Manager South West Water
and Master of Ceremonies:
- Rupert Cox – Chief Executive of the Royal Bath & West of England Show
were unanimous in recognising the hard work, dedication and success of the apprentices present. Indeed they made the apprentices, employers, training providers and their families were ‘the stars of the show’. To those receiving their awards Graham Cole said:
“The road you have taken can take you right to the top”.
The Government hopes that Apprenticeship Graduation Ceremonies will help raise the profile of Apprenticeships, putting them on an equal footing with a university route to success. Their ambition is for it to become the norm for young people to achieve their goals by going into an Apprenticeship or to university or, in the case of some Higher Apprenticeships, doing both!
