Our 2021 Learner Graduation ceremony took place at Arlington Arts Centre on Wednesday 6th October 2021. Covid restrictions had prevented our annual apprentice graduation in 2020, so everyone was delighted to finally come together and celebrate our learners’ achievements, especially after such a challenging 18 months.
We were honoured to have MP Laura Farris, Conservative MP for Newbury, at the event, who gave an upbeat motivating graduate address that captured the optimism and excitement of the occasion.
As well as awarding our fantastic apprentice graduates, we announced our 2021 Honorary Fellowship of WBTC, Tammera Easterling, for services to young people in Berkshire. Recipients of our 2021 WBTC Platinum Award were the wonderful EBJC Chartered Accountants for providing a consistently excellent apprenticeship and training programme.We like to thank our fantastic sponsors, staff, graduates and their supporters for making this event possible.
Well done and we look forward to celebrating the graduates of 2022 next year! Stay tuned for information about our 2022 Learner Graduation and Rising Stars Awards ceremony, taking place in May 2022.
