BPIF celebrates graduates and award winners

The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) staged a special live graduation and awards ceremony last week, celebrating the achievements of individuals from the past two years.

Hosted at the famous St. Brides Hall in London, the event brought together graduates who had completed their Level 5 Management Course with the BPIF over the past two years, as well as Level 2, 3 and 5 apprentices that were recognised for outstanding achievements.

A total of 100 people were in attendance for the celebration, with 30 learners graduating and eight induvials picking up awards.

Awards on the day included the Kathy Woodward Award, which, sponsored by Webmart, gave the winner £1,000 towards courses of their choice, and the Victor Watson Trophy, sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Makers of Playing Cards, which provided the winner with a chance to apply for £1,500 through The Printing Charity.

Speaking at the ceremony last week, Karly Lattimore, managing director of BPIF Training, said: “Apprenticeships are one of the most established ways of bringing new talent into the workforce – and one of the ways that our industry can remain competitively skilled in the future. 

“We are extremely proud of all of our apprentices, and we look forward to you being the future leaders in our industry – we wish you every success in your careers.”
