We are coming to the end of National Apprenticeship Week, a week to celebrate and showcase the thousands of apprentices and apprenticeship providers across the country, what they are doing and where an apprenticeship can take you.
The truth is an apprenticeship can take you pretty much wherever you want it to, and we have plenty of Apprenticeship success stories here at North Kent College:
The Kent and Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony
North Kent College had 25 apprentices graduating at the Kent and Medway Apprentice Graduation Ceremony last October. The event was first held in 2019 and rewards apprentices at all levels.
Hope West, Head of Apprenticeships at North Kent College, said at the time: “Year on year the Kent and Medway Graduation numbers are increasing at a staggering rate, and this is testament to all those involved within Apprenticeships including Apprentices, Employers and Training Providers, Parents and families alike.”
