About King’s School of Professional & Continuing Education

King’s School of Professional & Continuing Education is a new, cross-cutting function designed to widen the educational reach of King’s. It brings together five existing areas: King’s Foundations, Summer Programmes, Modern Language Centre, King’s Online and King’s Professional & Executive Development. Each of these areas are well established, respected and recognised within and beyond the King’s community. Utilising this success as a springboard, the School of Professional & Continuing Education has been established to provide a clear platform to enable greater and more seamless collaboration with colleagues in Faculties, enabling, developing and delivering a wider view of education across the College, delivered on campus, online and in a blended format. The Function will support King’s in this area, particularly around educational innovation and transformational learning experiences for different groups of students at different learning moments, whilst also addressing current structural barriers to growth each area faces.

Our vision is to work collaboratively with Faculties to develop and deliver King’s ambitions in expanding learning opportunities across the education spectrum. By expanding what education means at King’s, the new School will offer a joined-up approach to facilitating a broader King’s education experience to individual learners, public and private sector groups, and partners, both in the UK and internationally.
