Refrigeration and Air Conditioning student recognised at ACR Trainee of the Year Awards
Refrigeration and Air Conditioning apprentice, Jack, has had a successful year and is a finalist for the annual ACR Trainee of the Year Award!
Jack, who is 21 and from West Drayton, is currently completing his Level 2 qualification at Eastleigh College while working as an Apprentice at Gelidus AC. He is one of only eight finalists chosen from applicants all over the country.
Commenting on his success, Jack said, “It’s really good to have been nominated. It means they have seen something in me and that I might win. It’s great to have been put forward.”
Jack chose to study at Eastleigh College due to the great reputation it has for refrigeration and air conditioning and he hasn’t looked back since. Since starting at the College Jack’s success has been astounding, recently winning the National SkillFRIDGE competition and being nominated for the ACR Trainee of the Rear, in addition to the ACR News awards.
Jack was nominated for the award by his lecturer at Eastleigh College, Shaun Creech, who chose Jack because of his enthusiasm to learn and be his best. Shaun highlights, “Jack always goes above and beyond what is required and works really hard. He’s very talented.”
The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield on Thursday 7th December. The awards aim to celebrate exceptional skills of design, installation and maintenance engineers, and encourage trainees to excel in the trade.
Eastleigh College congratulates Jack on his achievements so far, and wishes him the best of luck at the awards. To find out more about the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning courses offered at the College, please visit www.eastleigh.ac.uk or call 023 8091 1299.
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.
