Education & Skills

As well as offering a fantastic coastal lifestyle, the Dover district offers some of the best performing schools in Kent with a broad range of selective and non-selective schools.  This includes three grammar schools, an independent school, and a distinguished state boarding school with military traditions.  Dover also has a further education college campus. 

Employers have access to a strong pool of graduates from three nearby universities, and a wide range of vocational training centres, including a £6.5 million Maritime Skills Academy currently under construction in Dover. Hadlow College, one of the country’s leading land-based colleges is also developing plans for further and higher education at the Betteshanger Sustainable Education and Business Incubation Centre.
