Welcome to North Kent College

What's next after your GCSEs? Step Up To College in September and unlock your potential.

Did you know you don't have to stay at school in September, you can make the move to college, training or employment instead. It may seem like a big decision for you, but if school and A levels aren't for you, or you want to learn the skills an employer needs, then a vocational course at college can help.

Stepping up to North Kent College enables you to build on your talents and skills in real commercial training facilities and works wonders for your confidence too.

North Kent College offers courses in 4 main vocational areas: Arts & Creative Industries, Construction & Engineering (incorporating Supported Learning), Sport, Hospitality & Service Industries and Business and Computing. Check out our courses on our website:
