ECA REGIONAL EVENTS

The school was designed to enable maximum use of new technologies to aid a truly 21st century teaching facility


recently completed an installation at Monkseaton High School, which was funded by North Tyneside Council outside of the Government’s BSF initiative.


The school was designed to enable maximum use of new technologies to aid a truly 21st century teaching facility and has adopted state-of-the- art lighting, along with fluctuating lighting levels, to assist with teaching a wide array of subjects within predetermined mood settings. This,


coupled with interactive media aided learning, and the embracing of pioneering technologies such as E-Stack natural ventilation, solar powered systems, learning aided lighting operation, biomass boilers and interactive teaching environments, positions this school as the first of its kind in the UK and sets a very high benchmark for future projects of its type.


Seat of learning: the school was designed to maximise the use of new technologies


Future Parts of the North East region traditionally have a very strong industrial heritage, with a proliferation of steel and chemical businesses that historically have provided work for specialist member companies over the years. Although the last year or two have been pretty bleak on the industrial front, members are now reporting an increase in the number of enquiries from their industrial clients, and are reasonably optimistic about the future.


During the recession, ECA members have been able to benefit


from the range of advice services offered through their membership of the Association. The North East regional office has fielded a greater than usual volume of calls from members wanting advice on a range of issues, including redundancy, recruitment, restructuring etc. Additionally, interest in ECA membership within the region remains healthy.
