Civil Ceremonies was founded on 1st May 2002 and is now celebrating 20 years in business. At the Kettering Park Hotel on 4th May, we joined with past and present staff, tutors, assessors and many friends and supporters of the business to celebrate the success of the company, and a glass was raised to the next 20!
We have grown in the 20 years of operation to be an Ofsted Outstanding rated training provider delivering Level 3 national qualification Diplomas in Celebrancy and additional specialist Level 4 training in Child and Baby Funerals and Advanced Tribute Writing. In 2013 we launched the website www.celebrantsupplies.co.uk offering ceremony related products.
John Valentine, a long-standing tutor with the company spoke at the event about the impact that Civil Ceremonies had made over the years to the growth and increasing popularity of secular funeral ceremonies in particular. Anne described how the success of the business was down to the staff and tutors who had worked so very hard over the years, thanking them and the many loyal suppliers and supporters who had become friends.
Describing the highlights of the last 20 years, Anne listed many key achievements, including: an Ofsted Outstanding grading on the very first inspection, receiving a national training award and Matrix accreditation, achieving national qualification status for the diploma training courses, obtaining a government contract to offer Advanced Learner Loans for the training, and establishing the Celebrant Supplies mail order service, the Celebrants’ Convention and the National Celebrant Awards.
The celebrants trained over the years have gone on to create and deliver professional, unique, and highly personal ceremonies for thousands of families and couples, a great source of pride for the company.
