Our mission at USP College is simple: to connect you with exciting, aspirational careers
Whether you plan to go to university or straight into the world of work, all our students share one thing in common: an aspiration to have an exciting and fulfilling career. But getting that first step on the career ladder can be tough. Even armed with qualifications, those entering the job market face an age-old paradox: you can’t get a job without experience, and you can’t get experience without a job.
At USP College, we understand that a great qualification is just the bare minimum that young people fresh out of education need to impress employers. That’s why we’ve designed our curriculum and college experience to focus on giving you real and relevant experience that makes you stand out. During your time with us, you will get plenty of opportunities to work in partnership with businesses and employers; these are seamlessly integrated into your studies through our College Companies, professional development days and industry placements.
Our five specialist sector areas. As a student not only will you join a course, but you will also join one of these sectors.
But why have we chosen these sectors?
Our research shows that these areas prove to be the most popular with our students, year in, year out.
We know, from our membership of the SELEP*, that there will be a growing number of local employment opportunities planned for these areas over the coming years.
We have built close relationships with the local industry professionals and developed specialist expertise in these areas to make sure our curriculum meets the needs of employers as well as exam boards.
More than just qualifications
We believe that an emphasis on careers beyond qualification is right for students, right for employers and right for the local economy. We are proud to be leading innovation and pushing boundaries to ensure the education system not only trains young people to perform well in exams but prepares them for a career at the end of it.
