KFE4Skills Summer Showcase 2021 #KFE4Skills
KFE4Skills 2021 is now taking place as a single day skills summer showcase event in a virtual format on 18th June 2021. Due to Covid-19, unlike the 2019 and 2020 inter-college competitions, it will be delivered as a showcase event based on a series of adaptable briefs.
This year is not a competition but rather a chance for students to showcase their industry skills and for staff to support their preparation without the pressures of competition and judging. The showcase content will be presented live using the REMO event platform. The day's programme schedule will be released by 14th June.
The event will transmit on the day live via the Remo conferencing platform. Students, staff and guests must all register for the event in order to receive the necessary Remo registration and login information. We recommend you take a tour of Remo or watch this demo in advance to get the most from the day: Remo Demo.
Revised registration processes are now in place and if you had entered the originally planned event you will need to re-register. Event rules for 2021 are available on this page via the buttons to the right although the specific competition elements are suspended. It is also now possible to prepare showcase material and content in advance of the event for transmission on the day via Remo.
As always student participants will be supported in the event despite the virtual format and all participating students will gain a chance to showcase their industry skills, enhance their CVs and improve their personal professional development through participation.
All participating students showcasing their skills and all supporting students such as models, technician helpers and event helpers will receive a unique event medal and certificate!
This page will be updated regularly, so please keep an eye on our social media streams, including the Twitter feed @Kentfurthered and information from staff at each college.
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.

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.
