KaMCOP partners > Canterbury College
Canterbury College is one of the South East's largest, with more than 5,000 students and hundreds of qualifications. They are based in the student-friendly city of Canterbury and have a sister campus in Sheppey. They have created an environment where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can meet, learn and grow. Their courses combine professional-standard facilities, industry specialist tutors and outstanding student support.
Canterbury College is particularly focused on developing awards that blend academic study with opportunities for students to gain professional experiences while they study. By offering a variety of learning experiences and carefully designing assessments they aim to give everyone the opportunity to develop. They value diversity and the different perspectives this brings to debate and discussion. They also seek to create an environment where students can confidently take a step into the unknown, assured that they are safe and supported.
In 2017 Canterbury College was awarded a Silver award in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), which is comparable with many leading Universities. This was in recognition of the high quality of their teaching, learning, progressions at the end of each course and the support they provide to students. Both Canterbury College and East Kent College are accredited by the higher education Quality Assurance Agency (QAA).
