LCR Apprenticeship Graduation Evaluation

All who attended the Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Graduation in March agreed it was an outstanding event which recognised the achievements and successes of Liverpool City Region residents who graduated from their apprenticeships in 2017/8. Over 300 people attended the formal celebrations at St George’s Hall in Liverpool on Thursday 7 March. 

Graduates from various age groups and industries came together to receive the same recognition that university students are afforded upon completion of a degree. A range of colleges, training providers and employers attended the event to celebrate their apprentices for their passion, hard work and effort. 

A post-event evaluation report highlights the following: 

  • Graduates spanned all ages, from 17 to over 50. Nearly half (49%) were aged 17 to 25 
  • Graduates had achieved apprenticeships at a variety of levels from level 2 to level 5. The majority were at level 3 (49%) with level 2s following at 35% 
  • The apprentices who graduated were employed by over 50 employers across the region 
  • The apprentices who graduated were trained and supported by 24+ training providers 
  • Post event surveys showed what graduates appreciated most about the event including receiving recognition in front of friends and family, and apprenticeships being appreciated like a degree. 

Key quotes from the day:

“Thank you for the opportunity to take part in such a memorable and fantastic ceremony.” Beth Peers, graduating apprentice 

“I would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone. It has been a great experience and I’m very pleased to be here today to celebrate my achievement.” Thomas Denton, graduating apprentice. 

“I’ve never been to anywhere as nice as St George’s Hall so it’s really impressive to see the venue. It’s great to come along to a formal ceremony like this as we’ve all worked hard throughout the whole apprenticeship so why not take the opportunity to celebrate it?” Jack Parker, graduating apprentice. 

“As a former apprentice bricklayer, I’m committed to promoting parity of esteem between the academic and technical routes into the world of work. It was an honour to celebrate the achievements of hundreds of local apprentices at their graduation ceremony. Both events have been fantastic.” Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor, Steven Rotheram
