Eastleigh College employer partner recognised for industry award
Local law firm Blake Morgan are delighted to be recognised for the high-quality apprenticeship training they offer their staff, in partnership with Eastleigh College.
The law firm has been announced as the Number 1 Employer for Apprenticeship Training by specialist recruitment service The Job Crowd, who highlighted the high-quality training Blake Morgan and Eastleigh College provides through their Apprenticeship schemes.
Siobhan Clarke, Graduate and Development Officer at Blake Morgan describes what it’s like to work with the College, “We love working with Eastleigh College and have a fantastic partnership with them, allowing us to consistently deliver high quality training that is relevant to both our apprentices and our business. Through the College's extensive partner network, we can deliver training through local providers, but with the College as our single point of contact, which adds real convenience on our part. She adds “We are extremely proud of this award and look forward to continuing to build our partnership with Eastleigh College in future.”
Building on the success of its partnership with employers across the country, Eastleigh College also plans to launch a new Apprenticeship, in partnership with Blake Morgan and fellow legal firm Warner Goodman in response to the growing needs of the industry. The Advanced Apprenticeship in Paralegal offers an opportunity for those studying it to develop an understanding of the legal system, court hierarchy and disputes, and enhanced skills in case management and client care.
Dan Wareham, Lead Apprenticeship Officer at Eastleigh College commented, “Over time we have built strong relationships with a range of local employers who understand the importance of training, which is fantastic. I’m excited that we’re able to develop courses to meet employer needs and support businesses in every way we can.”
The College is the third largest college provider of Apprenticeships in the country, based on funding, and currently works with over 4,000 employers. The College’s Apprenticeship Experts team can offer a package of training benefitting all areas within a business, from roles in HR and finance through to business administration and management and can tailor the courses to meet the needs of individual businesses. With 71% off apprentices staying with the same employer after completing their training, it is a huge benefit for employers to take on apprentices, who can grow within the business and could become tomorrow’s leader. In addition to this, Eastleigh College is also proud to boast the highest learner satisfaction score in the Solent!

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.
