USP College was created following the exciting merger of Seevic College and Palmer's College in August 2017. The colleges were rebranded as USP College (Unified Seevic Palmer's).
As a college, our strategy is Career Focused Learning, ensuring that the learner experience and our relationship within our community, local and regional employers, are at the heart of everything we do. Our goal is to transform the lives of our learners and support them on their educational journey either to higher education or into the work place.
Our mission is to provide an excellent educational experience, delivering creative, innovative and interesting learning for our young learners and adults.
The range of roles we offer are broad-ranging including teachers, technicians, learning support staff, business support and specialists. The one defining feature for all is the learner based experience. Everything we do is designed to support the teaching and learning experience.
We pride ourselves on maintaining a high-quality workforce of committed, dedicated professionals to help our students reach their full potential; therefore, we are looking for passionate, creative and innovative staff to help us achieve our pledge to the community.
We value our staff and are committed to investing in them and their futures – offering competitive salaries, benefits and training packages.

We asked our staff why they choose to work for USP College. Here are some of their comments.
I have a major passion for ensuring funding and opportunity for learners. I was very lucky that I was able to go back to college as an adult and receive government funding to do so. I enjoy doing everything I can to ensure learners have the best opportunities, while simultaneously working to assure the use of the college funding allocations. It’s like giving back and giving others the opportunity that I was lucky enough to have. Without that opportunity I wouldn’t be where I am today and likely I wouldn’t have been able to support my son with his education, he’s now working towards his PhD.
I enjoy offering a diverse array of possibilities, catering to learners spanning from level 1 to level 4, including those who may have underperformed in traditional schooling or seek a fresh learning atmosphere. Witnessing these students embark on positive paths serves as the primary motivation for working in Further Education (FE), setting it apart from Sixth Forms and other educational providers.
Having built my career in this sector, I have been fortunate to receive a multitude of job offers and enriching experiences.
Additionally, the inclusion of broader experiences, such as educational trips and continuous professional development (CPD) opportunities, holds significant importance.
The ability to make a positive impact on students' lives is truly rewarding.
Witnessing their progress as they move towards bigger and better opportunities, whether it be through industry apprenticeships or university, fills me with immense satisfaction.
Inspiring and observing their growth in confidence, as they evolve into independent learners, and seeing them realise that they can indeed achieve their dreams is a truly fulfilling experience.
