Eastleigh College is delighted to be shortlisted for FE Week & AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2020.
As one of the first colleges in the UK to provide an innovative supported apprenticeship programme, we are particularly proud to have been recognised for the ambitious pathways and support for SEND learners to achieve economic independence.
The College’s supported Employment (SEMP), Supported Internship (SINT) and supported apprenticeship (SAPP) curriculum pathway model is enhanced be the opportunity for learners to develop independent living skills at College House which has consistently been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted since it was launched 16 years ago.
Chief Executive & Principal Designate, Paul Cox, said: “The judging panel fed back that the calibre of applications was impressively high this year, so being shortlisted is great achievement, and testament to the dedication and hard work of the Eastleigh College team.”
Eastleigh College is the first and only technical and professional college in Hampshire to achieve the new national Quality in Careers Standard, awarded by Investor in Careers. The whole college approach to career-focused education has resulted in this accolade being achieved well ahead of the September 2020 deadline, and Eastleigh College is featured on the Quality in Careers Consortium website to help inspire other FE and sixth form colleges.
After careful planning, detailed risk assessment and subject to any further Government announcements Eastleigh College is extending onsite campus teaching, learning and assessment to more learners from 1 June. The College has remained open during the Covid-19 pandemic as staff have been providing a broad range of onsite and online services. Therefore this phased approach builds upon the onsite levels of service and support which has been available to learners identified as vulnerable, or the children of key workers since 23 March.
