Improve productivity

In a 2017 government survey, 75% of employers reported ‘improved productivity, better quality of product or service, and higher staff morale’ by hiring apprentices. Off the-job training (OJT) can be flexible. You decide how and when it is delivered. With Eastleigh College, OJT can be online, in college, or a combination of these options. Our delivery modes include: Day Release, Block Release and Blended.

Build your teams

Build the teams you need to meet your business objectives. Welltrained, highly skilled staff add value to all organisations, both directly and through their ability to coach, mentor and train other team members.

Overcome recruitment challenges

Recruiting new staff is costly and can come with risks, so up-skilling existing staff is a cost-effective way to ensure your organisation has the capable personnel you need. Eastleigh college is the largest College provider of apprenticeships in the Solent region and delivered over 1250 apprenticeships in 2019/2020.

Motivate your employees

One of the most significant benefits of apprenticeships, for employers and staff alike, is that they help organisations keep their employees motivated and committed for the long-term, by helping them develop their skills over several years. Your apprentice(s) will be motivated to earn a qualification that is tremendously valuable, to them individually and to you as an Employer.
