In April 2008, Kent County Council entered into a joint-venture agreement with Hadlow College, a leading land-based sector educational institution, to support the future development and activities of Produced in Kent.
Kent County Council (“KCC”)
KCC is responsible for providing a wide range of services that affect the daily lives of people living, visiting or working in Kent. These include roads, schools, social services, libraries, adult education centres, trading standards and planning.
As Kent’s premier land-based College, and one of the top three such institutions in the UK, Hadlow has an established international reputation in this important sector and welcomes students from around the world. With over 40 years experience in this sector, Hadlow actively develops links with employers to ensure courses provide the skills which they need.
Hadlow College is situated on a 256-hectare estate which encompasses a range of wildlife and flora. The working farm, garden centre and national plant collections are all there to enable students to develop skills in the land-based sector. Commencing in Spring 2009, a £55m capital redevelopment project will update the student amenity, teaching, learning and leisure facilities to ensure that they remain of a high calibre and among the best in the country.
