KFE Skills Competition 2021 #KFE4Skills
KFE4Skills 2021 is now being planned as a single day event but in a hybrid format. Due to Covid-19, unlike the 2019 and 2020 inter-college competitions, it will be delivered via a blended format approach linking competing colleges via MS Teams, supported centrally by the REMO event platform.
This page will be updated with more information and new specs for each industry round through to February 2021. Make a diary date now for KFE4Skills21 - Friday, 5th March 2021.
Revised qualifying and registration processes were confirmed in December 2020. Updated online/hybrid event rules for 2021 are available on this page via the buttons to the right. As always finalists will be supported in participating in the event despite the blended virtual format and all competitors will still get the chance to test themselves against the abilities and skills of other students from KFE colleges and gain a chance to win gold, silver or bronze! There will also be a new finalists medal for all runner up competitors.
This page will be updated progressively, so please keep an eye on our social media streams, including the Twitter feed @Kentfurthered and information from staff at each college. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
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. Watch this page and our social media stream @kentfurthered for more information during the year...

Industry Competition Guidance & Specifications - World Skills UK
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.
