Harvey Clarke studied a Level 3 Marketing and Event Management course at Eastleigh College and has made strong and consistent development throughout his course, culminating in a DMM grade. Harvey’s strengths lie predominantly in project management and earlier this year he received the prestigious accolade of ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’, and is planning to progress to a degree at Solent University. Harvey said: “This course has been fantastic for me and all the activities and events have helped me develop ambition and endurance. I’m very much looking forward to the next chapter.”
Libby Needs has achieved an A* in Level 3 Childcare in Education at Eastleigh College and has enjoyed a rich variety of work experience during her course, including a placement in a nursery, a placement in reception and most recently a four-week placement teaching in Ghana. Libby has recently returned from Ghana, where she was teaching at both a private and public school, helping children discover new ways of learning. Libby commented: “Teaching in Ghana was an amazing experience and it was so rewarding to help these young pupils, who sadly lack the learning resources, foundations and teaching methods that we have in the UK. The lesson plans I created at Eastleigh College were very helpful during this trip and it gave me the opportunity to put all my training into practice.”
Andrew Kaye, Chief Executive Officer of South Hampshire College Group, said: “The achievement of a Level 3 qualification is one of the most important milestones in a student’s educational journey and can open up many doors for their future career. All the students collecting their results today across South Hampshire College Group should be immensely proud of what they have achieved. We wish all our students the very best of luck for their results and next steps in their educational journey or early career.”
Rosie Sharp, Vice Principal of Eastleigh College, commented: “We are very proud of all our students’ success at Eastleigh College. The achievement of their Level 3 qualifications will be the passport to their next steps into higher education or their early career journey and we wish all of them the very best of luck.”
Professional and technical Level 3 courses present a dynamic alternative to A Levels, offering valuable work placements and industry experience alongside that can propel a student into their future career or higher education study. Level 3 programmes are two years in length, the same as A Levels, and are accredited on the UCAS tariff for entry to university.
