Eastleigh College has moved to online learning, as such campuses are closed to the vast majority of learners. The College remains open (including over the Easter holiday period) for 16-18 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.
Four Level 3 Catering students recently took part in an inter-College cookery tournament at the Universal Cookery Food Festival at Laverstoke Park Farm, to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The students competed by cooking various barbeque dishes, including BBQ pizza, lamb sliders and oriental marinated pork, and were the winning team!
Student Harry Flint said, “I enjoyed using a proper pizza oven, it’s much more interesting. And really hot!”
Speaking about his favourite part of the event, student Andrew Hawkins said, “The best bit was actually serving the dishes to people. I also learnt a whole new dish, which involved pounding a pork loin and moulding together with prawns using protein powder salt.”
There was also the opportunity for the students to learn from the experts by chatting to professional chefs, who gave them handy hints and tips for getting a job in the Catering industry.
Teenage Cancer Trust raised an amazing £2,850 at the event, and have extended special thanks to the Colleges who took part!
