Eastleigh College's excellent apprenticeship provision, as well as our collaborative employer won us the title of ‘Training Provider of the Year’ at the national ACR & Heat Pump annual awards.
Award sponsor, ACR Journal, highlighted: “Eastleigh college works with industry to provide students with up-to-date equipment to work on. Fujitsu UK uses the college to provide bespoke training not just for their clients but also other students on Fujitsu AC systems after donating several systems, and other organisations are looking to set up similar arrangements.”
Eastleigh College’s apprenticeship lead, Dan Wareham, and RAC lecturer and assessor, Shaun Creech, attended the prestigious event in Manchester which was hosted by Sky Sports’ Jeff Stelling.
Vice principal with Eastleigh College, Matt Phelps, said: “We’re extremely proud of the RAC teaching team who provide consistently excellent training and attract learners from across the country to benefit from our superb facilities.”
Success at Eastleigh College was also down to some innovative sourse creation as Matt explained: “We were approached by various companies to develop a block release programme for the new RACHP Apprenticeship Standard to fill a void that customers, mostly within bigger companies, were looking to be filled. This has been developed to run along with the continued day release and evening courses.
“We’d like to extend our thanks to the employers and suppliers who work with us to ensure we are always one step ahead, and our learners are always up-to-date the very latest industry practices.”

An apprentice quantity surveyor is singing the praises of the industry work experience he gained while studying full time at Eastleigh College which, in part, led to him successfully gaining an apprenticeship. He is now urging others who want to pursue a career in construction to push for relevant work experience with key local businesses.
An innovative and exciting Level 3 Health & Social Care course has been launched for Sept 2020. The learning programme has been developed in partnership between Eastleigh College and University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, and offers a unique introduction to school and college leavers with a desire to work in a range of clinical healthcare roles including nursing, midwifery and occupational therapy. The study programme is the first of its kind, and is likely to be even more popular following the government's recent announcement of a £5,000 per year NHS bursary scheme.
