Kent and Medway Progression Federation (KMPF) was delighted to welcome representatives from more than 35 partner schools and colleges to our annual Partner Summit on Thursday, October 13.
This year’s event, which was held at the Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone, provided an opportunity for both experienced and new Progression Mentors to hear about and understand the outreach support available to schools through the KMPF partnership this year.
Supported by our university partners, The University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, The University of Greenwich and The University for the Creative Arts, attendees were able to hear about the opportunities available to support students with their careers and education choices.
There were also several breakout sessions which focused on different underrepresented groups, including children in care/unaccompanied asylum-seeking children, students with SEND and/or mental health and white working-class families.
The event also offered networking opportunities with colleagues from partner schools, KMPF and university outreach teams.
Gavin Delf, Kent and Medway Progression Federation Hub Manager, said, “Our annual summit provides a brilliant opportunity to get together to share learning and discuss ways of supporting our young people. We always come away motivated and inspired.
“The feedback from the event has been extremely positive and I’d like to thank everyone who attended for their valuable contributions.”
He added, “We now look forward to working with our partners over the coming months to continue raising aspirations, improving attainment and supporting the higher education transition process.”
