Industry Training Graduations

MTFJ runs Industry Training Graduations to recognise the achievements of recent graduates and provide an opportunity for the trainees and apprentices to celebrate with their families, friends and employers.

Graduation ceremonies are attended by graduates who have recently completed a National Certificate qualification with an Industry Training Organisation (ITO), the local Mayor and Councillors, and the ITOs themselves.

The graduations are a time for celebration as well as thanks to local employers for their ongoing commitment to youth and training.

As of 2018, ITO Graduations take place in two "runs" - a May run and a November run. 

Most graduations take place in November.  

In November 2018 the following Councils are look to host a ceremony:
