Kent & Medway Progression Federation

The Kent and Medway Progression Federation is a partnership between the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, the University for the Creative Arts, MidKent College, Kent County Council, Medway Council and 40 schools in Kent and Medway.

Collaboratively, we work to raise the aspirations and attainment of young people from challenging backgrounds who might not otherwise consider progression to higher education. The vast majority of young people with whom we work are from disadvantaged backgrounds or comprise first generation higher education applicants, meaning they are the first in their immediate family to go to university.
