Buy the gift of a new hobby this Christmas
Eastleigh College is offering an alternative gift this Christmas, the gift of a new hobby!
The College offers a wide range of part-time leisure courses which includes jewellery making, photography, cake artistry and DIY workshops, all starting from as little as £30, which could make the perfect gift this Christmas.
A part-time leisure course at Eastleigh College is an opportunity to learn a new skill at a range of levels, de-stress, socialise and even turn a passion into a career. The College's courses range from one-day workshops and introductions, through to 35 week programmes across various locations and start dates. Courses are available from beginner to advanced, all with the support of our dedicated tutors.
Geoff Stroud, a tutor at the College highlights, "We ask our learners at the start of the course what skills they want to gain from their DIY workshops, which enables us to deliver a course which suits their personal needs and interests. It's really rewarding to teach people skills they never thought they'd have, and I know my learners really enjoy the workshops too."

Eastleigh College opens a rapid-turnaround onsite Covid-19 testing centre
Eastleigh College is offering rapid-turnaround lateral flow tests for learners and staff to help in the fight against Covid-19. Lateral flow tests can produce quick results and can be used to identify Covid-19 infection in those without symptoms (asymptomatic). It is hoped that running these tests across the college will result in faster detection of cases for learners and staff without symptoms, and therefore achieve a more effective prevention of infection.

The Prime Minister announced that GCSE and A level exams would not take place this summer, and that vocational examinations would continue as planned. We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
