KFE4Skills Summer Showcase 2021 - 18th June 2021
KFE4Skills is our major annual skills competition. This year it is taking place in a virtually supported format using the Remo events platform. The event has been especially adapted for 2021 as a skills showcase event rather than the traditional competition format for participating and supporting students and will take place live on Friday, 18th June 2021.
Due to the impact of Covid 19 restrictions on FE colleges and the national lockdown measures that were in place to 8th March which closed all FE colleges except to small numbers of learners, it has been necessary to positively adapt the event in a way that will be beneficial and exciting for all students involved.
It will also ensure there is far less pressure on students and supporting staff as there will be far less complexity in terms of meeting specific skills criteria on the day and there will be no formal judging. Although it may be possible, for delegates on the Remo platform to vote for their favourite industry showcase examples on the day!
We hope the event will see hundreds of Kent and Medway's FE college students participate, support and demonstrate up to 24 different industry further education college skills showcases throughout the day! We are also delighted to confirm all participants will receive a unique KFE4Skills event medal...

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.
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 summer / autumn 2021 (TBC pending Covid restrictions).
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.
