Eastleigh College Staff Win Prestigious Industry Award
Eastleigh Colleges’ Hospitality and Catering department were recently awarded the Chairman’s Shield at the Craft Guild of Chefs Honours and Awards.
The prestigious event, which took place at the Victory Services Club in London, recognised the exceptional commitment and outstanding contributions from its members over the past 12 months, with all of the winners nominated for demonstrating excellence within their chosen categories.
Attending the event, the College department were thrilled to receive the award, which is presented to a College or catering establishment, which has demonstrated the most outstanding student results during 2018.
Commenting on the nights events, Sue Lyons, Hospitality and Catering Programme Area Manager at Eastleigh College said “We were absolutely thrilled to receive this award, especially as it was nominated by the Chairman of the Craft Guild of Chefs; we felt very honoured! We had no idea we were receiving this prize, and are thrilled to know that the hard work that we put into ensuring our students get the best start within the industry is recognised so widely within our field, and not just within education.”

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.
