Information for Schools
Welcome to our information page for schools. Compare the differences between school and college and read information about vocational courses and our offer so you can be fully informed when advising pupils with their choice between school and college.
North Kent College works directly with schools, academies, trusts and key partners providing information about the provision we offer. We encourage Year 10's and Year 11's and their parents/carers to attend our Open Days and events which showcase a variety of progression routes, meet the tutors and view our facilities. We also visit schools giving free advice and talks about our offer.
With the recruitment period for Year 11s starting early in to the academic year many schools expect Year 11s to have a place for Year 12 secured by Christmas. You need to be informed about all the options available to your students and this is where we are here to help you.
Our on-site visits can be tailored to meet your specific needs and aimed at at a certain year group or a variety of year groups. Most commonly we would deliver a presentation with a Q&A session to a specific year group or assembly. We will explain how we offer a vocational pathway and the employment opportunities available.
