College governor appointed Local Authority Director of Solent LEP
Congratulations to Councillor Judith Grajewski, a long-standing and valued governor of Eastleigh College, who has been appointed Local Authority Director of Solent LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership).
As an Executive Member for Public Health at Hampshire, Councillor at Eastleigh Borough Council and Hampshire County Council’s representative on the Partnership for South Hampshire (PfSH) Joint Management Committee, Judith has a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Judith is also a director with a Hampshire-based advertising and design agency providing strategic marketing and creative support to local and national small and medium-sized businesses, and is extremely well-placed to take on the role with Solent LEP.
Eastleigh College works closely with Solent LEP, which brings the business community together with the Further Education and Higher Education sector to ensure a prosperous and sustainable economic future in the region.
Councillor Grajewski said: “Being part of the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership works well with my current roles as their work impacts the whole region, establishing long-term strategies and actions for future generations that live and work here.
“I look forward to contributing to these strategies that will benefit our community, making it an increasingly vibrant area.”
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.
