KFE TLA Conference TLAC21 - 10th February 2021
KFE's fourth major Teaching, Learning & Assessment Conference will take place virtually for the first time on Wednesday 10th February 2021! The virtually based event will bring together hundreds of academic and academic support staff from all KFE colleges as well as some external parties. The TLAC21 virtual event will still take a thematic approach with staff benefitting from longer strand options on themes most relevant or of interest to them and their CPD enhancement. Clearly 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.

Kent Teachers' Awards - Virtual Event: 16th October 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 returned, but with a tweak! A new award for best support staff (academic support) was introduced to recognise the critical impact of so many unseen heroes working in our colleges who are often instrumental to enabling learners to achieve or in supporting their academic teaching colleagues.
Nominations proved positive in 2020 with 7 FE college winners! Despite the impact of Covid 19 the KTA's will go ahead as a virtual event on Friday 6pm, 16th October 2020. Congratulations to all our fabulous FE college! You can watch the video of the 2020 event here.
