On Thursday 30th July, BCS donated our 8 Learning Zone machines for the children to use at Acorn Homes, who offer education and care to vulnerable children and young people.
Acorn Homes deliver high quality, child-focused residential care placements for young people from the age of eight upwards within 19 homes across the UK. They offer residential care, shared care and after care support. Acorn Homes specialise in working with children and young people who have complex needs. Their needs may be behavioural, emotional, social, learning, physical or a combination and they build care around the unique situation and individual circumstances of each child by providing frontline fostering, educational and care services. We received a very happy reaction from the team when delivering the All in One machines and were greeted by smiling faces. If you or your business would like to donate or contribute to the amazing work that Acorn Homes do, please visit their website here.
What is happening with the Learning Zone?
Many of you would have attended our Learning Zone at the BCS offices to upskill yourselves! Our Learning Zone sessions entailed all things Microsoft 365, be that Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Teams, or an overall ‘working smarter with your machine’ session. We offer training to our customers to upskill their staff as this leads to MORE work, with increased productivity, MORE focus, higher levels of engagement and motivation, and MORE smiles, all-round happier people at work.
The BCS Learning Zone has been running for a number of years and we have made the decision to decommission it for the time being to adapt to the current climate. To keeping moving with the current working world we are now offering our training remotely for all our customers so they can still reap the benefits of our Learning Zone in the new virtual world. If you would like to know more about this training, please contact us on 01843 572600 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When our offices re-open we will be offering our Learning Zone space to our customers to utilise for their internal training needs.
