KFE Skills Competitions 2020 #KFE4SkillsLive
KFE confirms the next KFE4Skills competition will take place on 4th March 2020!
The competition will be just as ambitious as the successful 2019 event held at Canterbury College. However, the event's cycle takes it to Mid Kent College's Medway Campus for 2020. This page will be updated progressively from now to New Year, so please keep an eye on updates posted on our social media streams, including the Twitter feed @Kentfurthered and information from staff at each college. Registration will open from 1st December 2019 via the Registration button on this page. Updated guidance on the registration process and competition qualification will be posted shortly.
Qualifying rounds are held at each KFE college from October 2019 to February 2020. For each industry category 2 students are selected by their home college to go forward to 'KFE 4Skills Live'. Finalists are supported in attending the event and all competitors get the chance to meet students from other colleges, learn new challenges, show off their best work based and vocational or technical skills and gain a chance to win gold, silver or bronze!
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 Kent Further Education. 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. Watch this page and our social media stream @kentfurthered for more information during the year...
Especial thanks to City & Guilds for sponsoring our 2019 event and to our media partner the KM Group.

Industry Competition Guidance & Specifications - WSUK Based Resources
KFE4Skills is intended to support and enable students to better prepare for official WSUK qualification events. As such the KFE competition is a stepping stone to the regional heats. However, each college is still responsible for entering its own students. KFE4Skills finalists are not guaranteed entry to WSUK regional heats and students' home colleges may also enter students for WSUK, that have not been through the KFE4Skills qualification and final event processes.
