School Links Courses
Links courses at Eastleigh College are specifically designed to complement a students schoolwork. The courses offer both choice and structure and are carefully planned, with a mixture of school, college and work placement, according to individual needs and circumstances. Pupils who will be in year 10 in the next academic year can apply now to arrange a place on a course starting in September 2018.
What is it like on a Links programme?
Students will gain realistic work-based experience, which should help them make an informed decision on their eventual career path. It will also leave them well placed for progression to further education or training when they finish school.
What to do next?
