We expect our staff and learners to treat each other with respect and dignity, regardless of individual differences in age, gender, race, background, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief. We explain more in our Learner Charter.
We welcome people with disabilities. Please ask to speak to a member of staff confidentially to discuss options for any support you would like. Whether you're doing Work Ready or an Apprenticeship, we want the experience to be positive and we expect our staff and learners to treat each other with respect. Read our Disability statement for more information.
Information in different formats
We want to make our information easy for everyone to understand. If you want a copy of any information in a different format, such as large print, audio or Braille, please speak to a member of our staff.
Leaflets are available in our centres, or you can speak to a member of staff confidentially to discuss any support you need.
Learning agreement and the enrolment form
All learners have to complete a learning agreement and enrolment form at the start of each course or training programme.
16-19 Tuition Fund
Kent Training and Apprenticeships (Kent County Council) will be receiving additional funding from the Education and Skills Funding Agency for the 2021-22 academic year to enable us to support learners who have had their studies interrupted due to the impact of the coronavirus.
In adherence with ESFA funding rules, Kent Training and Apprenticeships will be targeting this funding for learners who have not yet achieved English and Maths GCSEs at grade 4 or above and for learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), particularly where they have experienced additional disruption to learning because of their specific needs and disabilities.
Kent Training and Apprenticeships will be providing one-to-one support and be delivering to smaller group sizes. Additional sessions will be provided by increasing hours for existing staff and re-focusing their existing hours to one-to-one support. These sessions will be provided in the most appropriate delivery method to the individual learner's needs, by either online, telephone or in centres.
Occasionally, in an emergency or in severe weather, we may have to cancel or postpone classes. In these circumstances it isn't possible to contact all learners, so if you think there might be a problem, check our website or listen to Radio Kent 96.7FM or Heart Radio 103.1 or 102.8FM for the latest information. If you are in work-based training your employer will tell you more about emergency closures.
If you are on Job Seekers allowance, your local job centre will pay your travel in most cases.
