Sefton apprentices

ADVANCED and Higher Apprentices from Sefton are being encouraged to register to take part in what is set to be the UK's biggest ever Apprenticeship graduation ceremony.

Over 1,000 Advanced and Higher level Apprentices from across the Liverpool City Region, Merseyside,  are expected to take part in the high profile event at the Anglican Cathedral on 30 July 2015.

Entries for registration close on 26 July 2015 and Liverpool City Region, Merseyside,  Apprenticeship Hub is encouraging young people to ensure they're included in this prestigious ceremony by signing up to attend.

The ceremony will recognise those who have achieved advanced or higher level apprenticeships in the period from 1 May 2014 to 1 May 2015.

Stephen Roberts, General Manager of Crowne Plaza and member of the City region's Employment and Skills Board said:- "It is the Government's ambition, and mine, for it to become the norm for young people to achieve their career goals by going into an Apprenticeship or to University or, in the case of some Higher Apprenticeships, doing both, and for there to be 2 routes to success that are equally recognised as stretching, challenging and rewarding."

The Apprenticeship graduation aims to give apprentices from the 6 Liverpool City Region, Merseyside,  boroughs, Halton, Knowlsey, Sefton, Liverpool, St Helens, Wirral, the same recognition that university students receive upon the completion of a degree. It will also raise awareness of the great employment opportunities available to young people who choose the apprenticeship route.

This year will mark the 2nd time the event has taken place, following the huge success of the inaugural celebration last year.

Almost 10,000 learners started a Higher Apprenticeship in England during 2012/13, with key employers including Jaguar Land Rover, Barclays, Ford and BT offering apprenticeships.

The LCR Apprenticeship Hub is expecting over 3,000 people to attend the graduation, which will be held over 2 sessions to accommodate the apprentice graduates and their family and friends.

The 1st ceremony will begin at 2pm and the second will follow at 6.30pm. The Liverpool City Region, Merseyside,  Apprenticeship Hub is looking forward to welcoming those who have achieved their Advanced or Higher Level Apprenticeship to the celebration at the Cathedral alongside their colleagues, family and friends.

When combined, an Advanced Apprenticeship is equivalent to 2 A level passes and higher. Apprenticeships from levels:- 4, 5, 6 or 7, form the equivalent of Foundation degree level right up to Masters level.
