Up to date advice and guidance

Eastleigh College business development consultants help businesses to:

  • Gain accurate, up to date advice and guidance to get the most out of the funding and grants available
  • Identify course options and develop training plans aligned to organisational goals, objectives, values and plans for growth,
  • Schedule refresher sessions as required to maintain certifications and licences
  • Fill apprentice vacancies. We have many pre-qualified apprentice applicants looking for employers. We can also advertise your apprenticeship vacancies for you.
  • Set up traineeships for 18-24 year olds we’ll advertise the work experience placement for you. Government information about offering a trainee work experience (opens in a new window) explains that trainee work placements must last at least 100 hours and if your trainee gets unemployment benefits the placement can’t last longer than 8 weeks. You don’t have to pay trainees or give them expenses.
  • Offer work experience opportunities for young people. Work experience and employability forms a vital part of both the Government's Plan for Jobs and our provision for school leavers. We have a dedicated team of work experience coordinators who make the process straightforward. Telephone 02380 911164 or email workexperience@eastleigh.ac.uk

Supported Internship Programmes

Eastleigh College has fantastic success rates for students who complete our Supported Internship full-time course and is winner of the high profile 2020 ACC Apprenticeship Award for SEND Apprenticeship Champion.

A supported internship is one type of study programme specifically aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who have an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) and want to move into employment. The overwhelming majority of young people with SEN are capable of sustainable paid employment with the right preparation and support.
