Students from a range of part-time leisure courses were given the opportunity to display their creative work at a Leisure Courses Exhibition held at Eastleigh Museum.
Exhibits ranged from various courses including glass engraving, photography, cake artistry, drawing and painting, picture framing and dress making. Courses are held at various locations throughout the borough and for many students it's a great opportunity to meet new people, develop an interest or learn a new skill. For some, it's a regular commitment with one cake artistry student attending for over 15 years!
Adult and Community Learning Manager, Lisa Wise, organised the exhibition along with The Eastleigh Museum and said "This has been a wonderful opportunity for our adult learners to display their skills and achievements to the public across a wide range of subjects. We have had fantastic support from both learners and tutors in creating the exhibition and hope the items will enthuse and inspire others. "
The exhibition is running until 22nd June at The Eastleigh Museum and is free for all to view.
Eastleigh College is the first and only technical and professional college in Hampshire to achieve the new national Quality in Careers Standard, awarded by Investor in Careers. The whole college approach to career-focused education has resulted in this accolade being achieved well ahead of the September 2020 deadline, and Eastleigh College is featured on the Quality in Careers Consortium website to help inspire other FE and sixth form colleges.
After careful planning, detailed risk assessment and subject to any further Government announcements Eastleigh College is extending onsite campus teaching, learning and assessment to more learners from 1 June. The College has remained open during the Covid-19 pandemic as staff have been providing a broad range of onsite and online services. Therefore this phased approach builds upon the onsite levels of service and support which has been available to learners identified as vulnerable, or the children of key workers since 23 March.
