The GOETEC Consortium

About Us

The GOETEC Consortium is a collaboration between the IT and Information Services (IS) professional teams at Canterbury Christ Church University, University of Greenwich, the Universities of Kent, and the East Kent Colleges Group (EKC Group), together with Kent County Council Strategic Partnerships. 

The GOETEC partnership has a strong history of collaborative working over the last 20+ years and works closely with Jisc and the Kent Public Service Network (KPSN), to ensure all connected tertiary sector sites in the region enjoy reliable network service and can take full advantage of the shared cross public sector procurement opportunities available to them. 

We work on behalf of our members to ensure the development of services which promote and facilitate collaborative working and the sharing of effective practice and act as an advocate for Higher and Further Education IT/IS services across the region. Learn more here…


In 2017, GOETEC Ltd transitioned to the GOETEC Consortium. The members of the Consortium are currently University of Kent, University of Greenwich, Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent County Council and EKC Group.

The GOETEC Consortium is based at the University of Kent in Canterbury. A key activity for the Consortium is to represent the interests of the Further and Higher Education community in the KPSN infrastructure, including the high capacity core network with links to the 3 universities, the colleges and to Jisc. Key work areas include improving cyber security, identification of professional development opportunities for IS/IT staff, a programme of digital events, knowledge exchange workshops and identification of good practice among the IS/IT community.
