Did you know the UK is the 6th largest economy in the world? This means there are lots of exciting opportunities for entrepreneurs and employees who have a sound understanding of business enterprise, events, finance, marketing, sales and management. In a highly competitive market, our programmes will encourage you to stand out from the crowd by developing the knowledge, planning, organisational, team work and practical skills you will need to progress onto university or employment within business enterprise or event management.
Every year the Event Management department at Eastleigh College host the 'Entrepreneur of the Year' awards, where one student is selected and awarded the prize for the best performing student of the year. This year, the awards were sponsored by Concept Building Services, who currently employ many Apprentices through the College.
In a bid to support the Solent and South Hampshire’s economic recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Eastleigh College has launched an ambitious and collaborative pledge which aims to benefit individuals, employers and communities across the region. The pledge has been developed with support from a numbers of stakeholders including business groups, employers, councils, schools and University of Portsmouth.
In response to the rapid expansion of online education and the proliferation of virtual classrooms, Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education Children's Services and Skills) is undertaking a national review to evaluate learners’ experience of the online learning available to them. Eastleigh College is one of the 12 FE colleges nationally invited to participate, and the only college from the Solent region.
