Accessing a College Environment

Junior College students chose one of two specialist programmes in addition to their core subjects.

These two specialisms take advantage of industry standard facilities, and strong industry links and are taught by expert staff, from industry to enhance the student experience and raise career aspirations.

Megan's Junior College Experience

We spoke to Megan about her time studying with the Junior College and why she thinks other young people should consider this route over tradition schooling. Here’s what she had to say:

“Junior College is full of supportive and engaging teachers who will really boost your confidence and give you a ‘can do attitude’. Add that to the equipment and facilities the College has to offer, and you’ll be able to succeed.

EKC Broadstairs Junior College has helped me massively on my journey to success and I will always be grateful.”

“I was immediately interested in coming to the Junior College when I found out I’d get a proper, vocational qualification at the end of the two years, so I could immediately start working in the Catering industry. The support at the College also great, I feel like the staff care about their students a lot more.

Catering and Hospitality Specialism

“I chose to come to the Junior College because I think it will benefit me later in life and help me get into the industry I’m passionate about. I am really passionate about sport, so having the opportunity to focus on just that one specialism will help me get ahead in the future.”
