If you are one of those people in the Kettering area, do not panic, Kettering Training Services can help.

  • Maths
  • English
  • Personal and Social Development
  • Employability
  • Work Experience
  • Personal Learning & Thinking
  • Employment Responsibilities and Rights

Our Study Programme is a 3 day per week, 24 week course, personalised to our students, with small groups and 1 to 1 support.

Beth Panter, who progressed from the Study Programme into an apprenticeship through KTS, said:

“Joining KTS was a life changing experience. My tutor’s support was amazing at getting me to the stage I am at now and I couldn’t be any happier”

Apprenticeships: Your Career Starts Here

If you’re not sure if college, Sixth Form or university are for you, or you’d prefer a more hands on experience, then an apprenticeship could be the way forward! Kettering Training Services specialise in working with a number of local businesses to offer apprenticeships in Business Administration, Customer Service, Team Leading, Print & Printed Packaging, and Fashion & Textiles.

Apprentices gain experience and qualifications through on the job training and directed study, and earn money while they learn. You will gain invaluable work experience and an industry recognised qualification that will give you a head start in your career, and unlike University there are no student fees.
