Online remote working a success for Eastleigh College learners
During this testing time, our Uniformed Public Service learners are far from being obstructed. Through online resources and teaching platforms, our learners have been able to continue their education from home, as part of the stay at home procedure.
As part of timetabled lessons, course lecturers have been able to release teaching resources and mark incoming work, as part of an ongoing effort to ensure learners aren’t missing out on important work or being set back. Our learners have therefore put in the effort to interact with these resources and are continuing their course as best as they can, despite the circumstances.
Through the continued support of the college, learners have been able to fully reduce the risk of going outside. Structured online lessons ensure that learners are kept engaged with their course and meeting their targets. Therefore, their targets have not changed and neither have their aspirations.
Lucas, a student on the Public Service course said “Staying at home directly helps our Key Workers and Uniformed Public Services. In the public service, adapting to the situation at hand is key; and that’s what I have been able to show. Stay safe, stay at home, but don’t let the situation stop you from chasing your career”.

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. Lateral flow tests can produce quick results and can be used to identify Covid-19 infection in those without symptoms (asymptomatic). It is hoped that running these tests across the college will result in faster detection of cases for learners and staff without symptoms, and therefore achieve a more effective prevention of infection.

The Prime Minister announced that GCSE and A level exams would not take place this summer, and that vocational examinations would continue as planned. We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
