Neil Collishaw, BPEC’s Chief Executive Officer, got a preview of Eastleigh College’s brand new plumbing workshop for BPEC learners, due to launch in September, when he visited the training centre earlier his month.

Eastleigh College, a BPEC Registered Centre for gas engineering and plumbing and heating training and assessments, has enjoyed an excellent working partnership with BPEC over the years. Neil visited the centre and met with Michael Lock, Head of Gas & Plumbing, Smart Metering and Renewable Energy, to understand more about their current and future needs and discuss how BPEC can better support them.

“It was really good to see Neil and discuss changes in the industry and how we can jointly raise the standards and aspirations of learners,” said Michael. “We have a great partnership with BPEC and enjoy an excellent standard of service, particularly from the BPEC admin team who always respond quickly and efficiently to our enquiries.”

“Michael was a wonderful host and introduced me to his whole team, as well as giving me a tour of the college and the amazing new plumbing workshop, which will be used purely for BPEC students” says Neil. “Eastleigh College is a principal BPEC Centre and I wanted to find out exactly what its future needs are, so we can deliver the best possible customer service.”

More than 22,000 learners from across the country choose to study at Eastleigh every year because it continues to develop a wide range of programmes to provide the skills and knowledge for a highly rewarding future.
