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.
