As a prominent member of the Board of Governors for over twelve years, most recently serving as its Chair, Eastleigh College would like to extend a huge, heartfelt thank you to Paul Quigley for supporting the College and its wider community over many years.
Looking back over his time, Paul said, “I am most proud of the College employees who have lead and dealt with significant changes at all levels, and who continue to place the wellbeing, training and education of their students at the centre of their objectives.”
Chief Executive and Principal of Eastleigh College, Jan Edrich added, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul for his outstanding commitment to the impact of education and training, using his voluntary time over so many years to lead and guide the College.”
“For me, Paul is a particularly unique Governor – he is a critical friend, supporting the college, whilst always challenging, asking the right questions and moving us forward. Paul has been instrumental in guiding the College strategically, understanding the true value of outstanding education and training within our local and national scope and aiding bold decisions to enhance the employment opportunities for residents local to our provision. Although he is stepping down as our Chair this year, the strategy for growth he has helped steer will be apparent for many years to come.”
Looking into the future, Paul is confident the College will continue to flourish. “Eastleigh College has a deeply developed expertise in delivering a range of responsive technical and professional qualifications, through a business model widely spread over the training marketplace. I see the College playing a leading role both locally and nationally in the future and look forward to seeing what they do next.”
From everyone at Eastleigh College, we would like to thank Paul for his fantastic contribution, wishing him all the best in the future.
