English, Further Maths and STEM & Computing were among the 37 A-Level courses that achieved a 100% pass rate across the USP College campuses, based in Chadwell Road, Grays, and Runnymede Chase, Benfleet.

361 students successfully completed their A-Levels at USP College, with the majority achieving the required grade to move on to their intended next steps. One particular student, Andrea Neville, has been offered a place at the University of Oxford to study Ancient and Modern History in October 2021.

USP College, which stands for Unified Seevic Palmer’s, launched its Career-Focused Learning Strategy in 2020 to ensure students leave College with the knowledge and skills they need to stand out for high-end careers such as accountancy, software engineering, investment banking, medical science and law among others.

While studying at USP College, students have the opportunity to participate in professional development days, where sessions are led by industry experts in their chosen career sector. They can also learn career-specific skills that aren’t covered in the course curriculum, and gain broader employability and study skills to help them become a more attractive university or job applicant. Students also visit local employers to gain real work experience as part of these professional development days.

They are also able to join career-sector specific College Companies, which simulate day-to-day life in the work environment and allow students to work on live briefs for local and national businesses.
