16-19 Tuition Fund Statement
Eastleigh College is committed to ensuring that all learners on a full-time study programme who have not achieved grade 4 or 5 in English and/or maths by age 16 have the opportunity to access small group tuition to boost their opportunity for success on their chosen qualification. For the purpose of the ‘Tuition Fund’ programmes, groups will be no larger than 7 learners.
Accountability Statement (Future Skills Plan)
On 3rd May the Eastleigh College Board approved the publication of the inaugural College Future Skills Plan. This strategic document has been developed to enable the college to continue to meet its ambition to support the local, regional and national skills and training needs of businesses and wider industry bodies. This document is the cumulation of a significant piece of research that reviewed the colleges current and future curriculum offer and how this offer aligns to the needs of our local economy.
This document compliments the development of the Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) led by Hampshire Chamber of Commerce as the Employer Representative Body (ERB) for shaping the future skills need of the region. The Skills and Post – 16 Education Act (2022) places a duty upon providers such as Eastleigh College to develop a curriculum offer that contributes towards meeting the regional employment demands, working in collaboration with other providers, local government, employers and other stakeholders.
The Future Skills Plan also incorporates the ‘Accountability Agreement’, part of the Department for Education funding and accountability reforms, colleges are obligated to outline their curriculum targets that reflect how they are contributing towards LSIP priorities. As both documents are outlining these skills priorities, the accountability agreement is incorporated within this publication.
