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.
Eastleigh College is very privileged to have been credited as an Approved Training Centre (ATC) for the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) at a recent presentation event.
The award, which credits the College as meeting a professional standard of training, was presented to Alison Leaverland, Head of Technology at Eastleigh College, by Kevin McCallister, National President of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering. The accreditation, which will benefit the teaching staff and College in general, also provides a range of student benefits which include trainee membership with the CIPHE, access to bursaries, career pathway development opportunities and access to certified e-learning modules.
During the event, and after a tour of the College's workshops, Mr McCallister commented "I have looked around some training centres that have been very sparse and I have been around some very good ones; for me this would be up there. We are very pleased to be at the College today to present this CIPHE status, which recognises the Colleges commitment to meeting professional industry standards, and to meet with their students who have shown such enthusiasm."
Alison Leaverland, Head of Technology at Eastleigh College, who accepted the CIPHE plaque on behalf of the College, added "We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised by the professional body for Plumbing and Heating Engineering. Technology subjects, such as plumbing and heating, are an exciting area of investment for us as a College and receiving this status clearly shows that our training really does provide those essential skills to thrive in the industry."
