We are delighted to announce that progress profiles go live this term. They have been developed by the Student Success Project (SSP) in collaboration with Planning and Business Information Office (PBIO) and the Unit for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (UELT).
What are Progress Profiles?
A Progress Profile is a document that summarises information about a student. Progress Profiles are intended to inform students and to help facilitate the academic adviser process.
The first version is quite simple, covering attendance and attainment. We aim to refine and extend Progress Profile content over time and in consultation with students and staff.
Progress profiles were prototyped in consultation with EDA students as part of Student Success Project Phase 1. They have been tested, refined and rebuilt for use across the University of Kent.
Where can I find out more?
Information sessions have been taking place; training and guidance for the Progress Profiles will be published and circulated shortly.
You can also find detailed information on the Student Success Resources Toolkit:
– A sample Progress Profile
– How students and staff will access Progress Profiles
– History, reasoning and design choices
– Support and training information
There are also Q&A sessions open to all University staff to be held in November. All staff are invited to attend to share ideas about the Progress Profile although places are limited.

These events will take place on:
Wednesday 14 November, Medway Campus, Pilkington Building Room 127
Friday 16 November, Canterbury Campus, Cornwallis East Seminar Room 1
