We've launched the 'Apprenticeship Experts'!
Eastleigh College is proud to announce the launch of ‘The Apprenticeship Experts’ team, in response to the College’s growing success in this area.
Eastleigh College is currently the largest provider of College apprenticeships in the Solent region, and the third largest provider nationally in terms of funding. The name ‘Apprenticeship Experts’ captures the experience and expertise of the team in providing high-quality apprenticeship frameworks, as well as its status in delivering apprenticeships both nationally and locally.
Matthew Phelps, Vice Principal of Commerical at Eastleigh College, said “We have been a big Apprenticeship player for many years, but I don’t think that this is widely known. The Apprenticeship Experts help us to articulate that Apprenticeships are in our heritage, and as a result we have established long-standing partnerships with employers, and our teaching reflects the needs of the industry.”
The College offers work-based and day/block release Apprenticeships, in addition to other professional training options such as Diplomas, Traineeships and part-time courses.
Eastleigh College has also invested £12 million in new facilities for their students, with work on a brand new Technology Centre already in motion. The centre will boast state-of-the-art equipment including a multi-purpose electronics workshop and 3D specialist software.
The Apprenticeship Experts provide advice for both those seeking an Apprenticeship and businesses looking to employ an Apprentice – email email@example.com to speak to an advisor, or call 023 8091 1195.
Eastleigh College Confirms COVID-19 Cases
At midday on Thursday 19 November we were made aware of eight confirmed COVID-19 cases amongst College learners. Based on the information supplied in seven of these cases there has been possible transmission linked to attendance at the College. In addition two staff members are required to self-isolate whilst seeking tests. Through our seating and group plans we have been able to quickly identify any learner(s) who were in proximity to the affected learners and all identified learners have been contacted in advance of this information being posted online and through social media. The College has also made contact with the parents, guardians or carers of these individuals where they are under 18, or under 25 and have an Education Health and Care Plan. Read more.

This recognition highlights the outstanding work of the college’s career and work readiness team, and other staff across the college who are dedicated to ensure learners are fully aware of the opportunities available to them.
