KFE TLA Conference TLAC21 - 10th February 2021
KFE's fourth major Teaching, Learning & Assessment Conference will take place virtually online for the first time, 08:45-16:30 on Wednesday 10th February 2021! The virtually based event will bring together hundreds of academic teaching and academic support staff from all KFE colleges as well as some external parties and guests.
The TLAC21 virtual event will use the Remo conferencing platform supported by MS Teams, and will still take a strand based approach with staff benefitting from an improved range of keynotes as well as workshop strand options on themes most relevant, or of interest to them and their personal and organisational CPD enhancement.
Given the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on education and training delivery, a major focal point will be on digital and blended learning, including lessons learned, good practice identified and consolidation of delivery and evolving related QA and QI approaches.
For historic 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. If you are an external person or organisation interested in attending please contact KFE via the contact form.
The registration portal is hosted on this site page and every effort has been made to interpret selected choices and allocate them subject to availability. The pre-event programme is available now above.
Remo is being used for Strand C including all keynotes. Please check out the Remo platform demo to get the most from the day. Early login using the link emailed to registered delegates is recommended to give you time to familiarise yourself with the platform and to get the most from its interactive features on the day. If you have selected sessions in Strands A and B you will have received the links in separate emails sent Friday 5th February.
Note: this event is for KFE Colleges and invited guests only.
KFE4Skills Live 2021 - 5th March 2021
KFE4Skills is our major annual skills competition, this year taking place in a virtually supported format. Our original plan was to undertake this on Friday, 5th March 2021. However due to the continued Covid 19 restrictions on FE colleges and national lockdown the event will be delayed until into the summer with provisional plans to hold it on either 18th or 25th June 2021. We will confirm the new plan and date for the event as soon as possible.
The event will see hundreds of Kent and Medway's FE college students compete in a score of different skills competitions throughout the day. Registration is open and it remains possible to submit early registrations.
For information visit the KFE Skills Competitions page. #KFE4Skills21.
Registration is now open. Contact KFE via the Contact Page form option for more information.
Kent Teachers' Awards 2020/21: Nominations Open
The Kent Teachers' Awards enters its fourth year with KFE as a key partner. Since 2018 over 30 FE college staff have won KTAs including overall awards and a plethora of District Awards. In 2019/20 the event was held for the first time in an entirely virtual online format which saw KFE support three awards for best FE, HE and academic support staff member. The video of the 2020 event and the poster for the 2021 event can be found via the buttons below.https://www.kmcharityteam.co.uk/schools/ktoty/
For 2020/21 there will be two awards, one for best FE and HE academic staff member and one for best academic support staff member. The nominations portal hosted by Inspire Schools and the KM Charity Team is open now. Award winners will be announced via an event to be aired in May 2021.
Given our amazing staff have gone above and beyond to support our FE college learners during the Covid-19 pandemic, we hope that many will be recognised through nomination and some ultimately as district or overall KTA winners. The KTAs afford an excellent way for the critical impact of so many unseen heroes, working in our FE colleges and enabling learners to achieve, or in supporting their academic journeys, to be honoured through an external event, which adds kudos and is held alongside school staff peers.
