Our specialist sector areas

Getting you into a high-end career

We specialise in getting you into high-end careers, particularly in five industry sectors. 

  • Creative Industries
  • Digital Innovation & Emerging Technologies
  • Financial & Professional Services
  • Medical & Life Sciences
  • Sport & Healthcare Professionals

We focus on these five sectors because they offer our students incredibly exciting career opportunities. Our research also shows that these areas prove to be the most popular with our students, year in, year out. And as a bonus, they also offer the biggest employment opportunities in Essex and London. 

Keeping up-to-date with the changing world of work is a key priority for us. To help us do this, we've set up sector boards for our five chosen industry areas. These consist of local employers and industry experts. Each board meets regularly, updates us on the trends in their sector, and makes sure we're teaching the right skills needed for that area of employment. 

We also work closely with the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) to identify new opportunities and keep an eye on changing employment patterns. Plus, we stay in regular contact with large employers in the region, using these relationships to give you extra insight and knowledge. 

Our focus is to make sure you have the skills that are relevant in today's - and not yesterday's - world.
