APPLYING

As a charity, we try our hardest to support all applications we receive, however because of limited funding this is not always possible. To help enable us to make a decision on successful applicants, we ask both the employer and apprentice to submit a written supporting statement within their application. 

If you have an apprentice about to start at the Heart of Worcestershire College, or currently taking part in an apprenticeship but not in receipt of a WCAA grant, the College will contact you to highlight the opportunity for funding through the Worcestershire Construction Apprentice Academy. 

Alternatively, you can contact the Solutions team at the College, who will help direct you. Information can be found on our Contact page.
