Fairtrade Fortnight website provides wealth of resources for school pupils
A team of Eastleigh College learners has launched a dedicated website to promote a range of fun and inspiring educational online events and activities for children and young adults to raise awareness of Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight (22 Feb - 9 March). Schools, colleges, community groups and home-schooling parents are all being invited to use the resources including quiz nights, interactive learning sessions and a Fairtrade bake off competition as part of the work experience element of their course.
Demand for Healthcare and Nursing courses rises amid pandemic
Eastleigh College is reporting a third more school-leavers applying for its range of Health and Social Care courses, including the unique Pathway to Nursing course that the college runs in partnership with University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. The surge in demand for the Level 2 and Level 3 courses is being attributed to the coronavirus, and is in line with today’s news from the BBC that UCAS has witnessed record numbers of students applying to study nursing at universities.
