IB Director General launches initiative to raise student aspirations in Kent

 Through the initiative, which has been developed in partnership with Kent County Council, 26 state schools in Kent will now offer the CP. The project is built on the success of the county’s CP pilot which commenced in 2012. The pilot significantly improved students’ life chances in deprived areas of Kent; the average pass rate of CP students in participating Kent secondary schools exceeded 93 percent. Two-thirds of last year’s cohort progressed to higher education, many of whom were the first in their families to do so.~


Kent CP pilot students have chosen a mixture of traditional academic and career-focused subjects to study at university such as English; journalism; computing; and finance and history. Many have opted to study outside of their home county in cities such as Edinburgh, Loughborough, Nottingham and Reading.
