Courses for 18-19 year olds who cannot find employment or work-based training.
In response to coronavirus (COVID-19), Eastleigh College designed a range of level 2 and 3 'Bounceback' technical & professional courses to retrain 18-19 year olds for high demand work if they cannot find employment or work-based training. View the list of courses at the bottom of this page.
The priority is for young people to find work or a work-based training offer such as an apprenticeship or traineeship. Where these are not available locally, Eastleigh College can use government funding to deliver extra classroom-based opportunities to young people to prevent them becoming not in employment, education or training (NEET). The government will fund this additional programme of study for up to a year from September 2020.
