We are delighted you have decided to attend the 2017 CILEx Graduation and Admission Ceremony.  This is our flagship event, and one we are delighted to be able to share with you.

CILEx Graduation & Admission ceremony offers a wonderful opportunity for your hard work and achievement to be recognised and celebrated with your friends, loved ones, fellow CILEx members, CILEx Council Members and staff. 

This ceremony allows CILEx the opportunity to congratulate each and every member for their hard work and commitment to the Chartered Institute. We hope to share the day with as many of our eligible members as possible. 

A short video from last year’s ceremonies can be viewed below.

The 2017 CILEx Graduation and Admission Ceremonies will be held on Saturday 7 October 2017 at Jury’s Inn, Milton Keynes. There will be three ceremonies taking place on the same day, being held at 11am, 2pm (fully booked) and 5pm.

If you have passed all relevant CILEx assessments, and have been upgraded to a Graduate Member, Fellow or Advocate of CILEx between 1 May 2016 to 31 May 2017, you are eligible to participate in the ceremony. Members who become eligible to participate, having passed their assessments/being upgraded after 31 May 2017, will be contacted in due course and invited to attend the 2018 ceremony.

All Graduates, Fellows and Advocates participating in the ceremony can attend free of charge.  Anyone wishing to attend but not participating in the ceremony must attend as a guest.  Guest tickets can be purchased at a cost of £25.00 per person. There is no limit on the number of guest tickets purchased per member but please note that these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Children are welcome to attend, however, please bear in mind that the ceremonies are of a formal nature, and around an hour in length, and may not be suitable for babies or young children; prams buggies and pushchairs are not permitted in the auditorium and children under five attending must be seated on an adult's lap.

Children aged five and over will require a guest ticket at a cost of £25.00.

We know you will understand that if children become unsettled this can spoil the experience. So even with a purchased ticket, a member of CILEx staff may ask guests with children to take them out of the auditorium, if they are disturbing the ceremony for other guests.
