The College at Clacton
Welcome to the College at Clacton
The Church Road Campus is the third largest campus operated by Colchester Institute. The campus first opened in 1976 as a result of the merger of North East Essex Technical College with St Osyth Training College which resulted in the formation of Colchester Institute.
The College at Clacton caters for a wide range of students including school leavers on full time courses, adult learners undertaking part time evening study, and 14-16 year olds on school link courses. There is a Centre for Learners with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities, and a successful walk-in style learning shop for adult learners to improve English, Maths, ICT and employability skills.
The vibrant campus has undergone a number of changes in recent months including new facilities for Carpentry and Joinery and Painting and Decorating. The campus boasts an excellent construction craft centre including specialist facilities for plumbing and electrical installations, as well as a range of classrooms and IT suites to cater for a wide range of provision.
The recently refurbished campus offers a clean and modern environment to study and excellent facilities for its students. There is a student common room with TV, as well as other quiet areas for study or relaxation. We are delighted to announce that our Shore Cafe at the The College at Clacton is now part of the ‘Happy Cafe Network’. This is part of the Action for Happiness community initiative to create friendly and welcoming places to meet other people with a shared interest in promoting happiness and wellbeing.
