Surrey Apprenticeship Graduation - Guildford Cathedral 27th September 2019

Surrey Apprenticeship Graduation

What is the Apprenticeship Graduation?
The Association of Learning Providers for Surrey are again running a graduation event for Apprenticeship completers in 2019. They will be hosting this prestigious event in Guildford Cathedral on 27th September 2019.

The Graduation ceremony is designed to celebrate and promote Apprenticeships. It will be a celebration for the apprentices, their parents, providers and employers but also an opportunity to raise the profile of Apprenticeships in general and engage new employers and learners.

The graduation flyer containing further information and the running order for the day is attached to this email. This is a fantastic opportunity to recognise the achievements of learners so please take the opportunity to discuss this with them.

For the first time, people aged 16 years and older will be able to buy a screening test patch from general sale outlets to see if they are allergic to PPD.

MHRAParaphenylenediamine (PPD) is one of the most common ingredients present in hair dye. The screening patch will allow people to see if they are allergic to PPD before colouring their hair.

Allergic reactions to this ingredient in hair dye can cause itchy rashes, redness and blisters. At its most severe, some people have even been admitted in A&E hospital departments.

The Colourstart Test is a self-adhesive plaster consisting of two patches, one containing 65 micrograms of PPD (active patch) and the other patch with no PPD (control patch). If there is a positive reaction to the test patch, which is applied to the upper arm, hair colourant should not be used. More information available here.

Don't miss the early bird offer *23rd September!
