Centre for Digital Technologies – Basildon

South Essex College's new state-of-the-art Digital Technology Campus is opening January 2021.

About the project:

  • The new Basildon Town Centre college site is being built thanks to a partnership between Basildon Council, Homes England and South Essex College. The contractor for the site is Morgan Sindall.
  • The college will offer courses including IT, IT networking, games design and animation at the site. These will be for both adults and young people.
  • The specialist site has been developed to enable the college to better meet the skills needs of employers both locally and regionally, providing courses that will meet employment and industry demands.
  • Modelled on the design of technology companies the campus will have a modern and innovative look and feel and have all the latest equipment and software available to students.
