Program Description:

In 2008, the University of Kent established the Centre for Professional Practice (CPP) to support its strategic plans for employer engagement and, specifically, to lead the design and delivery of workplace and work-related learning qualifications across all its campus locations. CPP is located at the Medway campus and within the Faculty of Social Sciences. This programme is work-based and structured specifically for primary dental care practitioners entering the Foundation Dentist Year 1 training. The programme has a flexible, modular format and adopts a blended learning approach; designed to combine academic study, professional practice and online techniques. It is delivered by the experienced specialist staff at NHS Health Education KSS. The programme content promotes subject-specific knowledge and competencies in preparation for entry into the recognised primary dental care career pathway. It also provides transferable credits towards a Fellowship of the Faculty of General Dental Practice UK (FFGDP) and an opportunity for you to develop both personal and professional skills enabling you to engage more effectively in meeting the changing needs of the dental sector. The initial award is for a postgraduate certificate but further study can lead to a diploma and onwards to a Master’s degree.
