Exceptional pass rates as learners receive exam results
Learners from across the College have received their course results for the 21/22 academic year, with data showing a very strong 98% pass rate for our Level 3 learners. This rate represents a wide and diverse learning demographic, including those aged 16-18, adults, full-time and part-time learners.
Paul Stannard, Vice Principal for Quality, Compliance and Improvement, said: “Our learners should all feel proud of themselves for their efforts this year and the outstanding 98% pass rate of those on our Level 3 provisions is a testament to their dedication and hard work. It also reflects the quality and commitment of our teaching team and we look forward to building on this success further as we embark on the 22/23 academic year.”
In addition to Level 3 outcomes, results for learners on our GCSE and BTEC Level 2 course provisions were released on Thursday 25th August. Many were keen to share their initial reactions with us.
Adult learner Tracy Clark was initially apprehensive about the prospect of returning to GCSE maths so long after her first attempt. Upon passing the qualification she said: “I’ve learned through my time here that it truly doesn’t matter how old you are, you are all working towards the same goal at the end of the day. Go for it!”
Sophia Rhodes had failed her English GCSE in the past and had struggled with the subject a lot before she enrolled at Eastleigh College. She had a special message for her teacher Debbie: “I am delighted to pass English! Thank you so much for all your help Debbie, you are the only teacher I’ve ever had who has helped me gain the skills and confidence to pass. I really appreciate it.”
Cameron Ross had completed qualifications at further and higher education before he made the decision to go back and study his maths GCSE. “It was definitely the right decision for me in terms of opening up career doors,” he said. “I never felt I was great at maths back in my youth but my teachers believed in me and the skills I had. I am delighted to have progressed this much and would recommend the course to anyone.”
Many learners who have successfully completed their qualifications will now be considering their next steps, whether continuing in further education, progressing onto higher education or transitioning into the workplace. Our Careers team are on hand to provide information, advice and guidance to any who would like support through this process. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
