Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

A wave of post-Covid-19 change is presenting Solent businesses with new opportunities and imperatives. Added to this, major trends are reshaping technical workforces of the future including the convergence of multiple new technologies and shifting global value chains. It’s no surprise that many businesses report difficulties filling positions that require specialist, work ready knowledge, skills and behaviours.

Eastleigh College supports employers by providing a range of quality-assured training programmes that meet the needs of their businesses. These include:

The College also offers a range of free-of-charge employer services, including:

  • Recruitment:
    • If you are in the process of recruiting a new employee, we can help you find a suitable apprentice programme for them
    • If you want to find a new apprentice we can do all the initial recruitment for you, presenting you with a shortlist for final interview. We have many pre-qualified apprentice applicants looking for employers who have transferred to our full time vocational courses because they are currently without an employer.

Quality training solutions

Apprenticeships must be of the highest quality to offer great opportunities for people and businesses. To achieve the most comprehensive, reliable, quality-assured, apprentice training provision possible, we have developed a strong quality and compliance culture including:

  • A dedicated quality assurance and compliance team who ensure our delivery is in line with funding body, awarding body and Ofsted requirements.
  • A network of training provider subcontractors who we might call upon, as required, to complement our own facilities, resources and specialist expertise.
  • A partnerships team who ensure that our subcontracted training provides the same level of learning experience that we strive to maintain across our main campuses. For details see our Subcontracting Policy
