Work at
West Kent College

What makes West Kent College a great place to work? Is it the place? The students? The staff?

It’s all of those, and something else as well, the impossible-to-measure “buzz”, the feeling that this is somewhere where things happen. West Kent College is an average further education College that is anything but average.

Whether you are a bricklayer eager to pass on the skills you have learnt on the site or fresh from university looking to start a career, there is something for you at West Kent College.

As a college we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our staff and students.  If you are successful, and join our team, you will be required to undertake satisfactory pre-employment checks including a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check and provide proof of their right to work in the UK.  More information on Safeguarding can be found within our dedicated pages. All our other policies, such as our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy, can be found on the College Policies page.

At West Kent, you will be working with enthusiastic, dedicated colleagues and the most challenging and rewarding customers – our students. It won’t be easy, students can be very demanding.  You will find yourself really stretched to answer their questions and meet their expectations, but there is no feeling like knowing that you have made a difference, that you have started someone on a life-long career path. It’s quite a responsibility – are you up for it?
