2009 - BCS Year of Transformation

2009 remains an important year for the BCS and all its members. A year after the Golden Jubilee celebration has seen the Society undergoing a transformation which propels it to serve its members better but to extend its services worldwide in the spirit of globalization. The eLearning SG wishes to join force with all staff and volunteers in achieving strategic goals that have been set.

Special Projects - BCS Membership Assessors Programme

In order to qualify as a BCS Assessor, selected applicants will be invited to participate in an E-learning programme. BCS is currently working on designing and building the on-line programme and will be looking for volunteers to participate in a pilot to test the on-line materials against a number of criteria which will seek to ensure that the E-Learning programme is a positive and fulfilling learning experience that meets both BCS objectives and serves as an engaging training programme for the individual.

If you would like to find out more about participating in a pilot which is planned to start around mid-July and last for 3 weeks, please send an email entitled "E-learning Assessor Training Pilot" to processing@hq.bcs.org.uk
