We provide core academic education alongside technical, vocational learning designed to develop learners to be creative, innovative and reflective. We are also here to provide them with the necessary knowledge, skills and work experience to be employed in the film, TV and theatre industries, where there is currently a substantial skills shortage.

ESA benefits from leading academic and industry partners. We are a UK centre of Screen Excellence and we aim to be a nationally leading school specialising in creative and cultural education.

As a new college, we are still expanding and innovating. We currently have around 450 students on our role and expect to be around 600 in the next few years. The dynamism of our college and our pioneering specialism provides a rewarding challenge for an innovative and inspiring Learning Support Professional seeking to inspire and support our creative learners.

Our students are very engaged by the specialist education we provide here and the quality of student productions are often industry standard. We have our own student led media production company who take on legitimate briefs for industry clients. Our current showreel can be seen on our website -
