The Kent and Medway Progression Federation (KMPF) is a partnership between the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, the University for the Creative Arts and 40 schools in Kent and Medway. The partnership works to raise aspirations and attainment of young people disadvantaged by circumstance, who might not otherwise consider progression to higher education.
KMPF were delighted to accept the National Education Opportunities Network (NEON) Award commendation in the category of Widening Access Partnership on behalf of all the partners who make up the collaboration at an awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament this month. NEON is the professional organisation supporting those involved in widening access to higher education to affect change in their own organisations and communities. This NEON award recognises organisations that work together and support each other to effectively widen access for those who need the most help.
The University of Kent has worked in partnership with KMPF since its inception in 2011 and has played an integral role in increasing opportunities and widening access to higher education for so many students across Kent and Medway.
