After working together to deliver high-quality work-based training for over several years, Eastleigh College and premium tea brand Twinings have expanded into apprenticeship training and launched TEA – the Twinings Eastleigh Academy.
The new 'TEA' training academy is designed to produce the next generation of highly skilled team members who will help shape the business's future, and keep Twinings as the number one tea manufacturer in the UK. It also aims to develop current staff into experts within their field.
Learners will be trained at Eastleigh College on a day-release basis, with access to all of our industry-leading facilities. The academy will also develop to encompass work-specific training opportunities for existing staff at Twinings.
The activity falls in line with the Government’s agenda to develop skilled workforces through 3 million new Apprenticeship starts by 2020. As one of the largest providers of work-based training in the UK and with over 50 years’ experience, Eastleigh College is proven to deliver exceptional training for businesses like Twinings, and operates several long-standing partnerships with employers in the region.

We are delighted to have been recognised by The Times Education Awards for the support we provide to students who need to re-sit their GCSEs after leaving school. The excellent results our students achieved last summer include more than twice the national average gaining a maths GCSE, testament to the dedicated team of teachers who use innovative approaches and techniques to inspire our learners.
Young chefs and hospitality students from Eastleigh College were joined by other competitors from training providers across the south to take part in the southern regional heat of an established national competition. The Major Series 2020, which is organised by Major International in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs, saw 50 competitors take over Eastleigh College's three professional kitchens and East Avenue restaurant and work their culinary majic across ten different classes from 'afternoon tea' to 'street food'.
