KFE4Skills 2024 #KFE4Skills
KFE4Skills is the annual skills competition showcase of the three colleges covering Kent and Medway's twelve main campus sites. At KFE4Skills, everyone gains a competition certificate and the finalists can even go forward to be selected to enter the regional and national World Skills UK competitions as a representative of one of Kent Further Education (KFE) colleges. It's a great way to get real exciting experience, improve that CV and get ahead of the rest in gaining a really great job and career in your field.

KFE4Skills23 - Competition Specs & Guides 2024 (TBC)
The various skills specs for 2024 will be updated and added below as they are completed in-year. Usually we expect to have these in place by early New Year. They are developed in consultation with the designated leads from each college for each industry skill. The buttons will change to amber when draft and green when 'live'. KFE reserves the right to change and amend specifications/briefs up to the date of the event. Such amendments will be to ensure they are functional and deliverable and meet any health and safety or other requirements identified, including Covid-19 safe requirements. Please check back regularly! All specs are the property of Kent Further Education and may not be copied or reproduced without KFE's written permission.
