Our aim

KCC aims to ensure that all of our students have an outstanding experience while at College.

We take a personalised and inclusive approach to enhancing the student experience – one that encompasses all areas of learning, all student services, and all aspects of the student journey.

The experience of being a student at the College, from applicant to alumni should prepare you for life beyond your studies and begin a positive lifelong relationship with us.

What our students can expect

Students at KCC will benefit from excellent teaching and a strong academic and support framework which responds effectively to the range of individual circumstances, experience, expectations and interests.

Enrichment opportunities include opportunities to learn a language, and develop skills to improve employability such as completing work experience, gaining Jack Petchy Awards or taking on a role as a student ambassador/representative.

When leaving the college, our students should be equipped with the expertise and attributes needed to achieve their full potential within the community.

Student council

The Student Council is an influential body made up of elected members of the student community who meet monthly to serve the interests of students at college, by working with staff and student reps.

Student Representatives

A student representative acts as the voice for all learners studying on a particular course. This gives you, as a learner, the opportunity to influence things going on in the College.

The course rep system:

Collects your views about college life

Allows staff, students, reps and the Student Council to work together to improve the quality of the total student experience

Provide reps with skills to improve aspects of their personal/professional life

Gets changes made that benefit you and your fellow students

Ensures the quality of your course remains high and consistent with those of other colleges

Student meetings and surveys

Course teams

All full-time and many part-time courses have a course team made up of  tutors who teach on the course plus student representatives. The team meets regularly to make sure the course runs smoothly and to review course quality.

Any issues can be discussed with your student representative or directly with your personal tutor.
