Leicester Apprenticeship Hub Graduation Ceremony

Yesterday, 4 of our Apprentices from the 3aaa Leicester Academy celebrated their graduation at the very first Leicester Apprenticeship Hub Graduation Ceremony. The prestigious event, which was held at De Montfort Hall in Leicester, was a great celebration of the Apprentice’s achievements and rewarded the success of the Apprentices within the local region.

Congratulations to the following 3aaa Apprentices on their outstanding achievements:

Jake Elliott – IT Level 3 Apprentice at East Midlands Water Company

Stephen Wray – Digital Marketing Level 3 Apprentice at Leicester Racecourse

Jade Green – IT Level 3 Apprentice at Impero

Ryan Warner – IT Level 3 Apprentice at Tech 4i2

Apprenticeship Graduation ceremonies are a celebration to recognise and reward the success of Apprentices across England, focusing on advanced and higher levels. The ceremonies highlight the quality of Apprenticeships as well as the progression opportunities available to former Apprentices.

The ceremony itself was hosted by Dominic Heale and Peeta Pendse from BBC East Midlands Today, the City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby and Bernard Szczech, the Chief Executive of IBM Services Centre UK Limited. During the ceremony, our 4 Apprentice’s families looked on proudly as the talented youngsters received their certificates and posed for photographs on stage.

Members of the Leicester team were then present at the reception for local businesses where they networked with a number of local businesses and organisation and continued to spread the great word about Apprenticeships.

Jade Green said “Being part of the graduation ceremony with 3aaa made me feel proud and made me realise I had made the right decision in going down the Apprenticeship route. My parents attended the ceremony with me and were also extremely proud of me. I would highly recommend an Apprenticeship to any young person.”

Jake Elliot commented “I attended the Graduation Ceremony in Leicester and it was a really good day. It made it all worthwhile, the Apprenticeship was one of the best things I’ve done and I’ve got some really good qualifications to show for it.”
