East Sussex College is the newly formed college following the merger between Sussex Coast College Hastings and Sussex Downs College.
We have campuses in Eastbourne, Hastings, Lewes, and Newhaven, and provide high quality education and training for almost half of the county’s young people.
We have years of experience of successfully delivering a broad range of academic and vocational programmes. These include A-Levels, Vocational and Technical qualifications, Apprenticeships, and Higher Education.
Our campuses are a place where you’ll be able to be yourself and feel right at home. College is very different to school and you’ll be given independence and you will take responsibility for your own learning.
We are dedicated and care deeply about nurturing and encouraging you to achieve your very best, both academically and personally. We will make sure that we provide you with the very best learning support, provide you with advice and guidance to enable you to make the right choices after college, and give you meaningful experiences and opportunities to equip you for the world of work.
Our current and past students constantly tell us how friendly, supportive, and welcoming we are. They also let us know that they really appreciate being treated like an adult and they feel respected as individuals.
To celebrate Women in Engineering Day on Saturday 23rd June, we caught up with Engineering Apprentice, Lilly James, to ask her about her job and course, and to hear her thoughts about being a woman in the industry.
