Students were treated to an action packed Fayre on Wednesday, which provided a great ice-breaking opportunity for new students to meet each other through an array of fun activities such as a rodeo pig, football speed cage and human demolition.
The Fayre offered the opportunity to find out about the range of student services that Eastleigh College has available, as well as exhibitions from numerous local organisations and universities, including University of Portsmouth, University of Winchester and the Solent University Career Coach, providing ideas and information on what students can aspire to.
The Level 2 and 3 Dance students performed an impressive energetic dance routine on trampettes, and a barbecue was provided free to all attendees.
Charlie Hurst, a Skills for Independence and Work student commented:
"It's been a really good event with plenty going on. I've had the chance to speak to lots of new people."
To find out more about the range of courses on offer at Eastleigh College why not come along to our Full-Time Vocational Courses and Apprenticeships Open Event on Wednesday 2nd October and Thursday 17th October, 4.30-7.30pm, or telephone 023 8091 1299.
We are delighted to have been recognised by The Times Education Awards for the support we provide to students who need to re-sit their GCSEs after leaving school. The excellent results our students achieved last summer include more than twice the national average gaining a maths GCSE, testament to the dedicated team of teachers who use innovative approaches and techniques to inspire our learners.
Young chefs and hospitality students from Eastleigh College were joined by other competitors from training providers across the south to take part in the southern regional heat of an established national competition. The Major Series 2020, which is organised by Major International in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs, saw 50 competitors take over Eastleigh College's three professional kitchens and East Avenue restaurant and work their culinary majic across ten different classes from 'afternoon tea' to 'street food'.
