Time to Join!
KC Apprenticeships

An Apprenticeship is a real job with training. You will receive both on and off the job training which will typically involve attending college for up to one day per week. By the end of your Apprenticeship, you’ll have gained the knowledge, skills and experience needed to either succeed in your chosen career or progress onto the next Apprenticeship.

Earn & Learn

One of the great things about being an apprentice, is you earn whilst you learn. You’ll earn at least National Minimum Apprentice Wage whilst you train, this is at least £4.81 per hour, with many employers paying more.


You’ll be on a contract of employment with your employer, so you’ll work for at least 30 hours per week, this includes any time spent training at college or in the workplace.

Apprenticeships typically last between 1-5 years depending on the level and standard.  Many of our apprentice’s progress up the Apprenticeship levels.


Apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16, living in England.

There are different entry requirements depending on the sector, job and Apprenticeship programme, so take a look at the sort of Apprenticeships we have on offer and contact our KC Apprenticeships Team for more information

College Days

Apprenticeships are a mixture of “on” and “off” the job training. You’ll usually be in College for up to one day a week, the rest of the time you’ll be based at your workplace.

Maths & English

It is expected that Apprentices will continue improving their maths and English throughout their apprenticeship.

Depending on your current qualification level you may need to complete functional skills lessons/exams or continue to improve without undertaking any additional formal qualifications


  • INTERMEDIATE: This is a Level 2 Apprenticeship and is equivalent to Five GCSE grades 4-9.
  • ADVANCED: An advanced Apprenticeship is equivalent to Two A-Level passes.
  • HIGHER: Higher Apprenticeships are Level 4 or 5, equivalent to a foundation degree, Higher National Certificate (HNC), Higher National Diploma (HND) or degree.
  • DEGREE: Degree Level Apprenticeships, are exactly that! They are Levels 6 & 7 and are the same as a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

My Time As A KC Apprentice

We interviewed Adam Watson to find out how he’s getting on during his first few months of his apprenticeship with Kidderminster College.

Catch up with Doug Marshall

“My accountancy career started in 2002 while on an apprenticeship with Kidderminster College and a family-run two partner firm based in Kidderminster”.

Catch up with Harriet Thomas

“I have recently completed a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools. When I first began my apprenticeship I was given the experience of supporting teaching and learning across the whole school”.


Be An Apprentice

“I believe that the benefits of being an apprentice is that you are able to gain real life work experience through learning alongside professionals who are able to help you put the classroom knowledge into practice. Through being an apprentice you get the best of both by earning money through working and then enhancing your learning through the college one day a week”.
