Merseyside’s apprentices to be recognised at graduation event

Over 1,000 Merseyside apprentices will graduate at Liverpool Cathedral on 29 April this year.

Apprentices from six boroughs will attend the graduation ceremony over two separate sessions at the cathedral to make sure that each and every qualifying apprentice is recognised.
Level 3 and 4 NVQ apprentices will be invited to attend the prestigious event, which aims to give apprentices the same recognition that university students receive on the completion of a degree.

Patrick McCarten, head of employment and skills at Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, said: “The Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Hub is very proud to announce the launch of the region’s first ever apprenticeships graduation event, celebrating the achievements of thousands of committed young people from the Merseyside area who have successfully completed a higher level apprenticeship over the last year.

“The high-profile, spectacular ceremony will be held in April 2014 in the stunning surroundings of Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral.

“A particularly exciting project for the Apprenticeships Hub, the establishment of a formal graduation event represents a milestone in achieving equal footing for apprenticeships as a proven route into a successful career alongside more traditional, academic options.”
