Sussex Graduation Ceremony Celebrates Apprentices’ Success
More than 60 West Sussex apprentices celebrated their achievements at a special graduation ceremony at The Hawth in Crawley earlier this summer in front of employers, trainers, friends and family.
Richard Burrett, West Sussex County Council cabinet member for education and skills said: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for people to learn whilst working in their chosen field.”
Among those at the graduation ceremony was Beth Reeves who graduated as an advanced apprentice in engineering manufacture (engineering maintenance) and works at Roche Diagnostics Ltd in Burgess Hill.
She says: “Graduating from education whilst in full time employment has had its challenges but today has made me feel proud of how far I have come. I got that feeling of achievement from everyone.”
The graduation event has been running for four years and is organised by West Sussex County Council and the Federation of Small Businesses.
