UK online centres
Do you need more income for your centre?
Back in December, we announced details of an income generating opportunity providing electricians with a qualified centre to complete their ECS Health and Safety Assessment online.
It was identified by Online Centres Network member, Kensington Community Learning Centre (KCLC) in Liverpool who were seeking other Online Centres in certain locations to try the opportunity as a pilot. Since then, KCLC has recruited six other centres with a further two having their own pilots in August.
Now, KCLC is pleased to announce that there is an opportunity for other centres to get involved in the project and benefit from the resulting regular monthly income.
They are specifically looking for venues in the following areas:
What Is Involved?
There are over 99,000 electrical professionals across the UK who hold an ECS (Electrotechnical Certification Scheme) card to demonstrate their credentials at work and on site. In order to obtain this card, which is renewable every two years, applicants need to complete an ECS Health and Safety Assessment.
These assessments were previously paper-based and only available at a limited amount of authorised centres across the UK. However, the assessments are now available online.
This is where your opportunity comes in
To qualify as a centre you must meet the following criteria:
- You must have 15+ broadband-connected PCs or laptops
- You must have two members of staff/volunteers who would be willing to invigilate computer-based assessments (full training will be provided free of charge)
- You must be able to make the above resources available for half a day or one full day per month
If you meet all three of the above criteria and would like to generate some extra income to help with your centre’s sustainability, or if you’d just like to know more about the project, please contact KCLC’s Alan Tapp at firstname.lastname@example.org or give him a call on 0151 260 1006.
Alan is initially looking to recruit centres in the above areas quickly (you could be up and running by September). Other areas may become available in future, so please register your interest with Alan.
