Whatever stage you are in your learning, Kingston Maurward College in Dorchester has something for you.

At our stunning campus, discover courses you may not have considered before – with many of our students spending a large proportion of their teaching time outside, we could have just what you’re looking for.

Preparing our students for land-based careers, we offer succesful full-time courses in subject areas including agriculture, countryside management, floristry, outdoor adventure, tree surgery, equine studies, construction, horticulture and animal care.

Apprenticeships – Intermediate and Advanced – can start throughout the year and take usually between twelve and fifteen months to complete. Earning while learning is an excellent way to get hands-on experience in industry and a recognised qualification, and being paid to do it! We offer apprenticeships in all of our land-based subject areas plus business based apprenticeships including Customer Service, Retail, Accounting, IT, Warehousing and Teacher & Learning. Full-time further education courses start in September and Apprenticeships and part-time courses start throughout the year.

To find out more come along to our Open Morning on Sunday 19th March 10am-12pm at the Main House.

Principal Luke Rake and the team will welcome you at 10.15am, 11am or 11.45pm after which you will be taken to the academy areas you are most interested in for an in-depth presentation and tour of facilities; plus, find out about transport and complete your application with our friendly and professional tutors on hand to start your future at Kingston Maurward.

There will also be a talk about our degree level courses in the Old Library at 11.30am – find out everything you need to know about Animal Behaviour & Welfare, Marine Ecology & Conservation, Countryside & Coastal Conservation, Agricultural Science and Tourism Park Management.

Please pre-register below to let us know you’re coming – we look forward to seeing you there!
