Spending E-learning credits with Schools' ICT Services|
A number of schools have enquired about the use of e-Learning Credits and whether the Schools' ICT Services was an authorised reseller.
The Westfield Centre is now registered as an accredited reseller of software on the Curriculum On-Line web site, under Lancashire County Council with the supplier ID 6232. Schools may therefore purchase software that is approved under the e-Learning Credits Scheme. We will purchase from those accredited suppliers on your behalf. Clearly the bulk purchases available will be advantageous in the discounts that can be negotiated on behalf of schools.
Schools wishing to take purchase materials with e-learning credits should contact Diane Robinson at the Westfield Centre on (01772) 450 705.
If you purchase materials with e-learning credits please clearly mark all orders under the e-Learning Credits scheme and ensure that similar note is maintained within school for validating claims for the DfES.
