USP College was created following the exciting merge of Seevic College and Palmer's College in August 2018. The college's were re-branded as USP College (Unified Seevic Palmer's).
As a college, our strategy is Career Focused Learning, ensuring that the learner experience and our relationship within our community, local and regional employers, are at the heart of everything we do.

Further information about working at USP College, including FAQs, benefits and our people.
My favourite part about my job is interacting with the students, getting to know them and being able to support them. I like that I am able to help them grow as individuals and within the subject.
The staff have regular CPD activities which we are encouraged to attend, we also have the option to choose which training sessions. Part of the CPD is you are able to work within an industry of our choice for one day which is something you might not be able to do in other jobs or colleges. I am also currently completing my Diploma in Education & Teaching so I can progress to be a teacher.
I have many favourite parts to my job, but if I had to narrow it down it would have to be seeing my students progress and see how confident they become through the relationships we build with them over the course. Also the awesome department I work with - when you have great colleagues it brings such a difference to your working day we support, help and laugh with each other and set an example of positive practice for our students.
USP really focuses on getting students to progress into further studies or careers and it is really rewarding watching the students do this.
Teaching at USP College is very rewarding, students come here from lots of different backgrounds and we try to change their attitude to learning. Students who are more engaged will achieve better grades, including some of my students who I helped prepare for the admission tests for Cambridge University.
The College has invested in technology to help with learning and teaching. I have developed an application for tablets by using Augmented Reality, where students can improve their GCSE Maths results by using the software to help them with problem-solving activities.
There are many opportunities for ambitious teachers, we use cutting edge technology and the College is a very innovative place.
Every teacher is valued and supported at USP College which is great.
