About Southend Adult Community College

SACC offers a wide range of high quality part-time courses and training for adults and young people, striving to meet the needs of both individual learners and local employers. We are an award winning college and have recently received our Beacon status. Awarded by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) it recognises excellence and innovation within the further education and skills sector. Beacon status is only awarded to those learning providers who deliver outstanding teaching and learning. This makes us the only Local Authority-run adult community college in the country to have received this award. Inspected by OFSTED in November 2008 SACC was judged as outstanding in many areas, this puts us in the top 4 per cent of adult colleges in the country.

So whether you are returning to education, wanting to upgrade your qualifications for a new career, or just looking to develop a new interest and have some fun, then we have the course for you. With flexible classes, childcare on-site and a warm and friendly atmosphere – SACC really is a fantastic learning resource right on your doorstep.

Southend Adult Community college welcomes applications regardless of gender, disability, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or faith.   The college is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and that students and staff can study and work in an environment free from harassment and bullying.    

Southend Adult Community College aims to achieve curriculum excellence by promoting consistently high standards of teaching, learning and assessment across all provision. We expect all academic staff to take Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence (PRIDE).
