EEFective Kent Project Updates - Reminders and Deadlines

This is a reminder that the Round One application window is now open. You’ll find the online application on our EEFective Kent Project page. The deadline for your Round One application is Friday 31 January. You received the prospectus (PDF, 1.6 MB) in December and will have been spending time considering what might be the best option for your school. Remember that we are holding roadshows to help you with decision making and to give you opportunities to talk to the providers.

Thank you to all those who attended the EEFective Kent Project roadshows on 22 January. We are also now opening bookings for the April roadshows which take place on Tuesday 21 April at Hadlow in the morning and Ashford in the afternoon. Please book a place by completing this form
