MidKent College has been delivering apprenticeships for many years, and we aim to provide high quality training, supporting employers across Kent.
Being based in an area where more than 60,000 SMEs operate means we understand the challenges faced in ensuring workforces are meeting the skills requirements needed. By providing an apprenticeship service we can help grow a skilled, motivated and qualified workforce, integral for businesses success.
Why choose the MidKent College apprenticeship service?

- High quality recruitment through our JobShop
- Access to a wide range of potential candidates with a free screening process

- On-the-job assessment methods and a dedicated training officer giving guidance and assessment visits
Why are apprenticeships so worthwhile?
Apprenticeships are great because they involve a mixture of workplace learning, off-the-job training and the chance to practice skills in an effective working environment, differentiating apprenticeships from narrowly focused training undertaken to suit job needs.
Apprentices can bring fresh ideas to your business, and often creative, inspired solutions to problems. They can be a flexible workforce for you, suited to the jobs you may need them do, and often come with a keen motivated attitude towards learning. Increased productivity and reliability also come with having apprentices as part of your workforce.
We offer a variety of apprenticeships, and these are added to each year to meet your employer demands. The College offers full support in ensuring your workplace fits having an apprentice and helps you integrate all current employment legislation and student requirements into your practices.
