KFE's dedicated NHS partnership page

KFE colleges have a long history of working with a wide range of NHS organisations and funded services in the health and care sector locally.In November 2022 KFE signed an MoU with NHS Kent and Medway.

Building on this, KFE has established an NHS Strategic Work-stream Group and is working to an annual plan aimed at supporting the requirements of NHS and care sector employers broadly, but particularly around workforce development and related education and skills solutions.

We aim to improve the interface between the NHS funded health and care sector and our FE colleges. This includes making our students and staff aware of and better able to engage with the A to Z of health and care clinical and support role careers, as well as work experience or apprenticeship opportunities and through the new NHS Reserve.

Connecting with Health & Care Partnerships

Our colleges have started linking to the 4 new HCPs across the county to ensure FE can respond to local employer needs, link our learners to careers and develop our curriculum relevance

This special landing page has been developed to promote the work KFE and its partner colleges are undertaking with NHS organisations across the county.

Kent & Medway NHS Academy

A central part of our work with NHS Kent and Medway will be supporting and working with a new countywide NHS Academy.

The Kent & Medway Health and Care Academy will provide routes for our students to access work-experience, placements, apprenticeships and employment across the NHS funded health and care sector.

KFE is already engaging with NHS Kent and Medway as one of our industry partners for the KFE4Skills competition. Students will be involved in the design of Kent & Medway Health and Care Academy assets as part of the graphic design competition.
