At USP College, we are on a mission to connect young people to great career pathways, through exciting work and learning opportunities. We have researched job opportunities in the UK and have a good understanding of local career options in Essex. This is further supported through engagement with local employers. With this combined knowledge and our expertise in training, it has enabled us to shape professional education into career pathways for the young people and adults we serve. Our strategy has been extensively informed by regional and national career growth opportunities, using the latest South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) skills strategy, national business organisations (e.g. CBI and Chamber of Commerce) and the government's skills strategy.
