Members of The City of Liverpool College’s Construction team welcomed visitors from Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) to the Vauxhall Road centre on Wednesday 11 January 2023 to present students on the electrical course with a valuable hand-held Regulations logbook. This important item will support these learners on their journey to professional status.
Steve McGreevy, Head of Construction at the College said: “We would like to thank our College partner, ECA, for donating key resources to our Electrical students. The Regulations books will not only be of huge benefit to our students during their studies at the College, but also prepare them for the world of work. This is a fantastic gesture from ECA and we look forward to enjoying our continued collaboration, along with the positive impact this will have in supporting our students.”
ECA is the main trade association for companies involved in electro-technical and other technical engineering projects in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. It provides support and advice to its members on health and safety, standards, skills, technical issues and employment, and works closely with other regulatory bodies to establish a safe and efficient industry.
Jim Johnson, Northwest Regional Manager at ECA, said: “It was my pleasure today alongside Mark Giardelli of McGoff & Vickers, Shaun McAteer from Actaeon Solutions Group and Luke Burns from City Electrical Factors to present The City of Liverpool College students with 44 new 18th Edition Regs books that will hopefully aid them in their studies to become Electricians. This is the second phase in our working partnership with the College, following our very successful collaboration with Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) in taking 60+ students to the NEC Birmingham to attend Solar & Storage Event, which showcased the future of the Electrical & Mechanical working landscape and where the students working journey may take them.
“ECA and MCS and their partners will continue to support The City of Liverpool College students on their exciting industry journey.”
