Eastleigh College in Eastleigh, Hampshire is a further education college providing technical and professional training and Apprenticeships to school leavers, in addition to part-time professional courses and part-time leisure courses for adults.

With over 9,000 apprentices in learning, the college was named the third largest college provider of adult Apprenticeships in England in 2014/15 (in terms of funding).[citation needed]

In 2018 the college was criticised for sub-contracting much of its provision.[1]

In 2018 a merger between Eastleigh College and Southampton City College was announced.[2]
