London. The UK’s biggest city, a beacon of cultural diversity with a rich and vibrant history. London has been home to ACC for a while, and in that time, we’ve cemented ourselves within this wonderful, passionate community. The city is a keystone of what we do, and it’s important to us that we adapt and evolve as the landscape around us does the same.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our brand-new, state of the art ACC London centre, opening in September 2023. While we’re not quite ready to show you how the space will look, find out why we knew we had to bring this unbelievable new centre to London in the below video.
A creative hub for gaming, esports, music, media and computing, spanning 19,000 sq. ft on Commercial Road in London’s East End, the facilities of this new space are unrivalled. The centre will feature our first dedicated esports classroom, complete with competition wings, a multi-functional event venue and a live music suite fitted with innovative recording studios, rehearsal rooms and production pods.
This will also be the first ACC centre to provide ‘super spaces’ for each of our courses. These incorporate traditional classrooms, alongside specialist facilities to champion a practical curriculum, with the flexibility to divide the space as required. For example, in the music super space, students will be able to watch, listen and use a recording booth within the classroom environment during a lecture or book it separately for private use in free periods.
These new, bespoke spaces will allow our students and staff to collaborate in brand-new ways, working together to be the best they can be and hone their skills, ready for the modern working world.
We’re offering a whole host of courses for students aged 16-18, as well as a range of 19+ Access to Higher Education courses, designed to help adults get back into education for further training, a new career path or to return to study after a break. We’re sharing this amazing space with one of our Higher Education partners, Nottingham Trent University’s Confetti Institute of Creative Technology, to provide London’s future creative and digital professionals with a full educational journey from Further Education to Degrees in the same, incredible building.
And this is just the start. We’ve got so much more to show you from this one of a kind space as we get closer to our big launch.
