KFE TLA Conference
TLAC20 - 14th February 2020
KFE's third major Teaching, Learning & Assessment Conference took place at Mid Kent College's Maidstone Campus on 14th February 2020 - yes Valentine's Day! The event will brought together over 160 academic staff from all KFE colleges. This year the event took a more thematic approach with staff benefitting from longer strand options on themes most relevant or of interest to them and their CPD enhancement. For the available event slide packs and other TLA Resources visit the site's dedicated page where you can find the 2019 and 2020 programmes and presenters' presentations. #KFETLAC.
Kent Teachers' Awards - Awards Dinner: 22nd May 2020
The Kent Teachers' Awards enters its third year with KFE as a key partner. In 2018 FE college staff won a total of 11 awards including overall awards and a plethora of District Awards in addition to the three FE specific categories and in 2019 11 awards were won. For 2020 the three FE categories return, but with a tweak! We will be introducing a new award for best support staff (academic support).
The formal launch of the KTAs 2020 takes place in December 2019. Nominations will open shortly after and there will be a link on this site. Staff can self-nominate but KFE actively encourages staff to nominate their peers. Nominations can also be received from students and businesses. So good luck to all our brilliant FE staff! #KMTOTY Nominations Open January 2020 - Closes 1st March.
