The Centre for Professional Practice is a trans-disciplinary academic department focused on flexible work-related learning within Higher Education. The Centre is founded on the belief that employers can benefit from the University of Kent’s academic and research excellence, quality teaching and design and development activities to create positive change and to forge new knowledge within their organisations.

The Centre recognises and understands the individual needs of working professionals, who participate as non-traditional part-time learners, and the balance required between study and the specific areas within which they operate. Our programmes of study provide inclusive and coherent educational and work-related opportunities. Taught sessions are delivered in a welcoming, supportive and flexible academic environment, by an academic team with extensive professional practitioner experience.

We work with a wide range of partners and employers to create distinct and original work-based and work-related developmental and educational solutions, which respond to the unique challenges experienced by employees and organisations across the region and beyond.
