Eastleigh College hosts BPEC to mark partnership for Gas Engineering and Plumbing End-point Assessments

To celebrate choosing BPEC for its Gas Engineering and Plumbing End-point Assessments going forwards, Eastleigh College hosted a visit by BPEC’s CEO, Neil Collishaw, and BPEC’s SkillPLUMB Technical Lead, Paul Dodds MBE, this week.

Eastleigh College has enjoyed an excellent working partnership with BPEC over the years and is a BPEC Approved Centre for gas engineering, plumbing and heating assessments and training. During the visit Neil and Paul met with our Head of Delivery for Gas and Plumbing, Gary Hancox, to understand more about the College's current and future needs and discuss how BPEC can better support the College.

Gary Hancox said: “We were delighted to welcome Neil and Paul to our facility. Our longstanding relationship with BPEC and our decision to use it for End-point Assessments is testament to the way that the BPEC team has supported us over the years. BPEC is an excellent partner and great to work with.”

Neil and Paul also had the chance to meet the College’s new Plumbing and Gas Assessment team and learn of the exciting projects and initiatives happening at the Centre. Eastleigh College has recently installed new Heat Pump training bays delivering BPEC’s Heat Pump qualifications to upskill plumbing and heating engineers.

Neil Collishaw said: “We’re delighted that the College has chosen BPEC for its Gas Engineering and Plumbing End-point Assessments! We had a fantastic day meeting the management and tutors and getting a full tour including the new Heat Pump training bays, which will be used for BPEC students.”

“Eastleigh College is a principal BPEC Centre and it’s always useful to discuss a Centre’s future needs, so we can deliver the best possible customer service.”

BPEC is an industry-leading specialist provider of qualifications, assessments, training courses and learning materials. It is a unique organisation led by employers for the benefit of the Plumbing, Heating, Gas and wider energy sector and all surplus funds generated by its activities are reinvested by The BPEC Charity.
