Commercial & short courses


North Kent College offers a wide range of commercial and short courses to suit both business and individual needs. Whether you need to develop your workforce or would just like to do a course to develop new personal skills; we have a commercial training course that will suit you.


We are dedicated to creating powerful partnerships with commercial organisations both locally and nationally. Our commercial courses can help organisations to grow and succeed and have a qualified and enthusiastic workforce; which will inevitably improve your bottom line.


The local community is at the heart of what we do. We are here to help improve the skills, employability and lifestyles of the community, within North Kent, South London and beyond. It’s not just Further and Higher Education that we offer, it's short courses that can fit in with your individual and personal aspirations. 

Our Locations

We have outstanding locations that host our commercial and short courses, so you can be rest-assured that you will be learning and developing your skills in some of the most state-of-the-art and award-winning facilities in England and the South East. 

Courses take place at our campuses in Gravesend, Dartford, SusCon and Bluewater in specialist workshops and facilities designed to replicate commercial and industrial settings.

These include the National Maritime Training Centre, with boats moored at our jetty on the Thames, our pool with lifesaving equipment and turbine access rigging, plus our bridge simulator; The Halls (air conditioning and refrigeration) Training Centre, our fire training ground; and classrooms within Bluewater Shopping Centre.
