LinC – Learning in the Community

College is not just about your lectures, assignments, homework and exams it is also about being active, making friends, contributing to the community, employability or pursuing an interest or activity. As part of your study programme you will be timetabled to attend “Learning in the Community” sessions for 1 hour 20 minutes per week either on a Monday or a Wednesday. These sessions will develop you personally and intellectually and will support your university, employment or apprenticeship application. KEC engages with national schemes and local organisations to provide lots of exciting opportunities.
