KFE's Health & Care partnerships 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 ICB.

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.

FE Provision Mapping

We have mapped our FE health, care and other sector route provision and are working with NHS organisations to map clear pathways to work.
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. The conference helped link college and health and care delegates as well as providing chance to collectively participate in the various workshops, network and realise collaborative opportunities.
Skills Development Fund

We are working with NHS Kent & Medway to improve career pathway information using immersive technologies.

On 16th May 2023 KFE and our NHS partners will launch the new Kent & Medway Health and Care Academy.

This event will also include presentations on our immersive learning tech work with the NHS as well as celebration of the winning logo design for the new Academy designed by one of our graphic design students as part of KFE4Skills23 held in March.

Kent & Medway Health & Care Academy

A central part of our work with NHS Kent and Medway is supporting and working with the new countywide Health and Care 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 already engages with NHS Kent and Medway as one of our industry partners for the KFE4Skills competition. The winning design by MidKent College Graphic Design student Harry Constable was revealed at the Academy's launch as part of the Kent & Medway Health and Care Conference on 16th May 2023.
