SACC was established in 1993. It has a small full–time team and over 200 part-time and voluntary members of staff. They provide award winning education, training and skills to over 6,500 customers and a large number of local businesses each year who participate in a wide variety of programmes, many of which lead to qualifications.

The College employer responsive provision was the first to be judged Outstanding by OFSTED (in 2009) serving over 130 local employers each year. In 2009 SACC became the first Local Authority run Adult College in the country to be award LSIS Beacon Status. In November 2017, OFSTED again judged the College Good.

SACC has three sites including a specialist centre for young adults with severe, profound and complex learning difficulties. Classes also take place at a wide variety of schools, community venues and organisations in and around Southend.
