Information for Schools & Colleges

At South Essex College, we aim to provide schools across Essex the best information about our courses and what we can offer students on their Post 16 Journey.

We have various different ways to provide this. See information below to find out about some of the ways we can aid your students in their decisions for the future:

School visits & Presentations

School visits & Presentations

Here at South Essex College, we have a team of staff who are available to come out to your school/sixth form to take part in Careers Events, Industry Days, Mock Interview Days, College Information Evenings and also give presentations to students about their Post 16 Journey. Alternatively, we welcome groups of students to any of our campuses where we can give tours, presentations and course specific workshops.

For more information on this, please email us or call 01268 461732.

Taster Days

Taster Days

If you are looking to give your students a taster of college life, how about booking onto our Taster Days? From Media to Business, these days are designed to give students a better understanding of the path they’d like to take after finishing their GCSEs. We also provide Taster Days for Higher Education Degrees, HNCs and HNDs.

Please view the full Taster Day Menu or email us for more information.

Information & Guidance Days for Schools and Council IAG Staff

Information & Guidance Days for Schools

We welcome IAG council staff and staff from schools into the college to find out about current information on the changes in the curriculum, applications process, influencing government initiatives and much more. These sessions usually last around two hours and can also include tours to specific campuses or a relevant subject area. Sessions are also lead by requirements of those who are attending.

To book your place now or for more information about IAG sessions email us.

IAG session dates

New IAG sessions for 2019-20 coming soon!

If your students are unable to make a Taster Day, their next best route is to attend one of our Open Events to find out specific course information and tour the College. Check out our upcoming dates and book your place.
