Welcome to Clacton Campus
Clacton is Colchester Institute’s smallest campus offering a supportive and friendly environment for students. 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.
Located close to the seafront and a five minute walk from the town centre, this clean and modern environment caters for a wide range of students including school leavers on full-time Study Programmes and adult learners undertaking part-time evening study.
Our Clacton campus boasts an excellent construction craft centre, which includes specialist facilities for plumbing and electrical installations, as well as multi-skills workshops for a wide range of construction related programmes including Plastering, Wall Tiling and Kitchen Fitting.
In 2019, we developed our construction training facilities with the investment in two large industry-standard multipurpose workshops and saw the launch of the new Construction Skills Centre, supported by Essex County Council and sponsored by Phelan Construction.
The campus hosts a range of programmes for students who wish to increase their employability or independent living skills, there’s a walk-in Learning Shop for adults who wish to improve their English, maths, IT or general employability skills.
The on-site Shore Café offers students a convenient place to purchase meals or snacks and catch-up with friends.
