Kingston Maurward is the training provider across a broad range of apprenticeships from Customer Service and Animal care, to Horticulture and Retail, for both its own apprentices and those employed externally.

Apprentices employed by the College, Medisave, Dorset Fire & Rescue and Dorset Police & Crime Commissioner attended the breakfast to interact with guests and give feedback and recommendations about their experiences.
