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 advanced level apprentices from Eastleigh College recently attended the first ever Hampshire and Surrey Apprenticeship Graduation Ceremony.
The event was held in the prestigious Guildford Cathedral and celebrated the success of over 180 advanced level and higher level apprentices from across Hampshire and Surrey. The students took to the stage to collect an apprentice graduate medal and certificate.
John Pratt, Head of Eastleigh College Training Agency, said ‘the event was a huge success and rightly celebrated the hard work and achievement of Eastleigh College apprentices and apprentices from across the region. Apprenticeships are becoming increasingly popular and are now seen as an equivalent and desirable route to a rewarding and successful career – it is vital that we take every opportunity to celebrate the success that completing an apprenticeship brings.’
Izzie Stacey, who completed an Apprenticeship in Business Administration, said ‘The ceremony was a really enjoyable event to attend and I feel very grateful to be recognised for an achievement I am very proud of. I feel completing my Apprenticeship has been one of the best things I have done, and feel excited to continue a career moulded by this.’
Laura Green commented, 'I feel really proud to have completed my apprenticesip - attending the graduation event was really enjoyable and a lovely way of recognising everyone's achievement'.
Sam Martin said, 'I'm absolutely overwhelmed to graduate. It's the best feeling. I'm now looking forward to moving onwards and upwards with my career'.
