Designated Member of Staff

All of the Colleges and Universities in Kent and Medway have a Designated Member of Staff (DMS) as a key contact to support Children in Care and Care Leavers in Post16 education.

Their role is to support young people, who may be thinking of joining them, through the application process and to ensure all support available is accessed. They will also provide support at transition into Post16 options.

They should be your main point of contact at the College or University.
