The results from the national FE Choices employer survey have been published, and Eastleigh College has been revealed as the highest-scoring further education college in the Solent region! The College scored an overall employer satisfaction score of 91.8, ahead of Fareham College and Sparsholt College.
The survey, which aims to gain an insight into employers’ opinions of the quality of training provided in response to the employer’s needs, produces a final score for each education establishment based on the percentage of respondents who would recommend the college another employer.
This year’s score of 91.8 improves on last year’s score of 8.8 out of 10, which is a great achievement for the college. Eastleigh College currently works with over 1,100 local employers and this continues to grow, especially with a keen interest to increase the number of Apprenticeships in the region.
Matt Phelps, Vice Principal - Commercial at Eastleigh College, said “The ability to be flexible in response to employer and learner needs is a hallmark of Eastleigh College’s technical and professional training, both locally and nationally. We are delighted with the outstanding results the college has achieved in the FE Choices survey, and our learners appreciate the close links we have developed with employers.”
