The policies and procedures documented here cover a range of issues relevant to existing and potential students.
Eastleigh College has a comprehensive Admissions Policy.
Any student who disagrees with an assessment decision should discuss this with their lecturer or assessor as soon as they can. The student should be supported and given full feedback so that the student understands the basis upon which the assessment was made and how they can improve their assessment. If it is appropriate the lecturer or assessor could provide an additional opportunity for assessment. If the student is still dissatisfied they should then take their appeal to the Internal Verifier for that programme.
Eastleigh College takes its child protection responsibilities very seriously, as outlined in our Safeguarding Policy.
16-19 Tuition Fund Statement

The College will respond promptly if you let us know when we do not meet your needs or keep our promises. In the first instance, you should discuss your concerns with your tutor.
