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 delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Cox as its next Chief Executive and Principal, following the retirement of Dr Jan Edrich in September 2020.
Paul brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role, having worked in the further education sector for over 15 years. This has spanned a number of roles, including senior management appointments at Worthing and Lambeth Colleges and more recently the Vice Principal of Curriculum and Quality at Eastleigh College.
Since joining Eastleigh College in 2017, Paul has had a relentless focus on the quality of the experience that Eastleigh College’s learners have during their time at the College, which has resulted in the best set of results within the College’s recent history.
Jon Sendell, Eastleigh College Chair of Governors, commented on the appointment by adding; “We are extremely pleased to have appointed Paul into this role. The Governing body have been very impressed with the volume of impactful change that he has made in his short time with us and believe that the direction he is planning to take the College should only see this continue.”
When commenting on his appointment, Paul Cox added; “I am thrilled to have been appointed into this post and look forward to my continued work with the fantastic team that we have here at the College. As a collective we all strive for excellence; be that through the student experience, our national rankings or through our day-to-day workings. That coupled with the fantastic heritage that the College has within the community, makes me confident that the College can only go onto bigger and better things, which I am excited to play a part in.”
Dr Jan Edrich added; “Whilst I am sad to be leaving the College after 8 years, and many more working within the education sector, I am delighted that the College will be in safe hands with Paul as my successor, and look forward to seeing how he will develop this even further within his new post.”
Following guidance received today from the Department for Education and Ofqual, we can provided reassurance to students who were due to sit GCSEs at Eastleigh College this summer.
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.
