Staff excellence celebrated in special breakfast

Staff members and teams from across Eastleigh College have had their efforts and achievements recognised by the Hampshire Education Awards, with a further two being shortlisted for the final award ceremony in June.

Taking place in our popular East Avenue Restaurant, the breakfast gave staff the opportunity to understand, appreciate and celebrate each other’s achievements over the course of the 22/23 academic year. The Hampshire Education Awards issued ten special ‘Thank You’ cards to acknowledge staff who were nominated for this year’s awards.

In a further exciting development, two staff members have been shortlisted for the final, which will take place in June. Natasha Curzi-Micallef is the Head of Delivery for Health and Social Care, Early Years and Dentistry, and is shortlisted in the 'Futures' category. Charlotte Burgess is a Course Manager and Lecturer in Health and Social Care and is shortlisted in the 'Teaching and Learning' category.

Pete Joddrell, Deputy Principal (Curriculum and Digital) at Eastleigh College, said: “The College is very proud of the efforts and achievements of its workforce, and it was brilliant to come together today and celebrate the recognition of our amazing team by the Hampshire Education Awards panel. We will be cheering on our shortlisted colleagues Natasha and Charlotte at the main ceremony next month and are also eagerly looking forward to our summer staff awards, where we can further celebrate our colleagues' ongoing dedication to the College and community.”

Councillor Steve Forster, Hampshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “Our Education Awards are an important opportunity to celebrate our many inspiring staff and volunteers within Hampshire’s education system. While it is of course not possible to shortlist every individual nominated for an award, the contribution of all nominees - and indeed everyone working in our large family of schools and colleges - is nevertheless remarkable and worthy of recognition.

"I want to offer my own personal congratulations to those at Eastleigh College who have been nominated and shortlisted this year. Thank you to you and all your colleagues for the incredible difference you continue to make in helping to shape the lives of our young people during some of their most important years.”

The Hampshire Education Awards was established in 2017 and celebrates the contributions of staff and volunteers in the education system, as a symbol of gratitude for the life opportunities their work opens up to young people. The main award ceremony is being held on 27th June 2023 at The Great Hall in Winchester. There will be a buffet reception from 6.30 PM with the award ceremony commencing at 7 PM.
