Eastleigh College is now closed to the vast majority of learners and has now moved to online learning. The College remains open for 16-18 year old learners of key workers, and those learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However for both categories, learners are asked to stay at home where it is safe to do so. Consistent with public health advice, learners and staff are asked to follow public health guidance and the steps outlined via the 'read more' button.
On Tuesday 10th November, our Level 3 Public Services students simulated a casualty evacuation to raise money for the Royal British Legion in aid of Remembrance Day.
Carrying two casualties on stretchers between them, the students walked from Eastleigh College to the war memorial in Eastleigh town centre where they were met by a member of the Royal British Legion.
They were met at the war memorial in Eastleigh by Bill Ronan, a previous Public Services staff member at Eastleigh College, and a standard bearer from the Royal British Legion.
Bill Ronan said “It was great to see the students so smart and taking the event so seriously – and even wanting to carry the dummies back to College!”
Helen Carr, Lecturer in Public Services at Eastleigh College, said “The students were a credit to their course and carried out the event with the outmost respect and dignity. I am very proud of their efforts and amazed at the amount they have raised between them for the Royal British Legion.”
Through personal sponsorship the students managed to raise an amazing £318.94.
Eastleigh College is delighted to announce that following the release of national government data, it has ranked 1st in Hampshire and 10th nationally against all other 6th form and further education colleges for its student achievement rates.
