Level 4 apprentice Dan, has found his career match in built environment and comments on how his English and maths skills have helped him progress. Dan explains, “At school you don’t think English and maths are needed, but in this industry they are! I deal with percentage changes in my role, so my maths skills are invaluable.” Dan is now considering his options to either continue working his way up in the industry, or go onto study further at university.
We also help our students prepare for work with our industry-standard equipment which ensures our students are using the latest tools to train with. Our teaching staff, who are leading professionals in their chosen industry, offer a wealth of experience and knowledge for students to utilise through work placements and employer contacts. Thanks to the College’s employer network, Luke who studies Motor Vehicle Technology has landed himself a job at a local garage after finding his career match on his course.

Eastleigh College is the first and only technical and professional college in Hampshire to achieve the new national Quality in Careers Standard, awarded by Investor in Careers. The whole college approach to career-focused education has resulted in this accolade being achieved well ahead of the September 2020 deadline, and Eastleigh College is featured on the Quality in Careers Consortium website to help inspire other FE and sixth form colleges.
After careful planning, detailed risk assessment and subject to any further Government announcements Eastleigh College is extending onsite campus teaching, learning and assessment to more learners from 1 June. The College has remained open during the Covid-19 pandemic as staff have been providing a broad range of onsite and online services. Therefore this phased approach builds upon the onsite levels of service and support which has been available to learners identified as vulnerable, or the children of key workers since 23 March.
