2019 saw Kidderminster College host it’s first graduation ceremony. The college re-introduced the HE provision with the support of NCG three years ago, in response to a regional demand for more skilled graduates within the Creative Industries regulation. Kidderminster College’s vision is to offer a degree with a difference – merging a university experience with all of the benefits of studying at a college. For its students, this means smaller class sizes in place of lecture theatres, more one-to-one support and gaining hands-on industry experience in real working environments
Kidderminster College’s graduation celebration marks the end of the first successful degree programme run at the college, extending on from the HND and HNC qualifications Kidderminster College already offers. Further Education institutions play a pivotal role in both social change and the local community. A vital bridge between school and future life, a helping hand between an unfulfilling, low paid career and that long-searched for job satisfaction and career boost, colleges prepare and reinforce the foundations of our future society, community and business. Further education does more than support the next generation of workers, carers and politicians. Further education provides an educational lifeline to adult learners, allowing anyone to retrain, to locally hone their talents and skillsets; further education provides a lifetime of learning and a lifetime of support.
Kidderminster College are proud to offer a range of Higher National Diplomas providing a programme of specialist vocational learning to ensure you have the chance to study higher level qualifications without the associated costs of moving away.
