IT does seem appropriate that the presence of South Essex College in Grays began in portakabin in the building site off Argent Street. That site became the Thurrock Learning Campus.
Now the Thurrock Learning Campus is set to become the University Centre Thurrock as the College has been given the seal of approval to deliver degree courses at the Grays campus.
The plan is to turn the building into a dedicated university centre.
YT went down to the campus to speak to the deputy chief executive, Anthony McGarel.
