JTL celebrate success at Regional Graduation Ceremonies

17 December 2015     JTL

JTL has been holding Regional Graduation Ceremonies across England and Wales over recent weeks, giving us the opportunity to celebrate the efforts and achievements of our learners who have completed their training in the last 12 months.

From Cardiff to Norwich and from Maidstone to Durham, 15 ceremonies have taken place so far, with many completed JTL learners coming along with friends, family and employers to celebrate and catch up with their former classmates and training officers.

JTL Chief Executive Jon Graham said: “JTL are keen to celebrate success, and want all our graduates to be able to participate in an event that is not dissimilar to a university graduation, because we know that apprenticeships are every bit as important to the future success of this country as academic degrees.

“We have very much enjoyed catching up with our former apprentices.”

Due to the unforeseen weather conditions that have been badly affecting Cumbria and other parts of the North West in recent weeks, our ceremony at Rheged Centre had to be postponed. This has been rearranged for Wednesday 20 January 2016, at the same venue. All attendees will be contacted to confirm arrangements prior to the event.

At each of the graduation ceremonies, a JTL Regional Graduate of the Year was named for each venue, based on Training Officer and employer feedback. Here’s the full list of winners:

JTL Training Centre, Birmingham – Lewis Hughes
Bristol City FC – Samantha Jones
Cambridge United FC – Jack Bassett
Cave Castle Hotel, Yorkshire – Oliver Carter
Cutlers’ Hall, Sheffield – Lewis Hancock
Derby County FC – Mitchell Shore
Guild Hall, Preston – Jonathan Wilson
Haydock Park Racecourse, Merseyside – Michael Wilson

Oakwood House, Maidstone – Richard Magro
Norwich City FC – Rob Lowe
JTL Training Centre, Oxford – Tom Davy

Each winner received a cheque for £100, with JTL's six Regional Business Managers now deciding which of their graduates will go forward to represent their region at the National Awards in 2016. Congratulations to our winners, and to all our new graduates.

The efforts of JTL graduates from across England and Wales were recognised
