Following recent government announcements regarding the changes to social distancing rules related to COVID-19, it is with great regret that we have taken the decision to cancel our Rising Stars and Graduation event in October.
The event was originally planned to be held in May, but was postponed to October due to the national lockdown restrictions.
Learners who achieved their apprenticeship between April 2019 and 31st March 2020 will be invited to graduate at the 2021 ceremony at Arlington Arts on Wednesday 19th May 2021.
We have, however, presented the Rising Stars winners with their awards offline and we are very pleased to announce the winners of our 2020 Rising Stars awards below.
