Education opens doors

As a child growing up in the 1960s, one of my favourite games was a driving game where I could manoeuvre vehicles around the town using a joystick. Actually I need to qualify this: it was a cardboard map of a town approximately 30 centimetres by 30 centimetres which sat in a box. Underneath the map was a magnet controlled by the joystick, and this in turn dragged the vehicles through the 2-dimensional town plan. To a modern audience this would seem really primitive, but back then it was for me a wonderful game.

Moving forward to the present day, my daughter plays intricate fast-action computer games with high definition quality graphics. It’s a different world! Recently she let me have a go and almost immediately I ran into difficulty. I wanted to move up to the next level which meant moving through a door, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t get it to open. Most frustrating! However when she took over she knew exactly what to do, and very quickly pushed the door open and moved through to the next magical Kingdom.

I then had the realisation that this was similar to what we do at ECBM; we are in the profession of door opening. We provide education for students so the previously locked doors can now be opened, and additionally we provide a map for what to do once you have gone through. We have the key and the map. How you use them is up to you.

One of the institutions we work in co-operation with is Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).  On the 27th April LJMU won the ‘University of the Year’ award at the Educate North Awards 2017, a most prized and sought after award.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nigel Weatherill accepted the award, saying:

“I am delighted that Liverpool John Moores University has won this prestigious award. This is testament to years of hard work by our staff and shows exactly what we can achieve by working together as a team, which makes LJMU the modern pioneering university in the North.

“It is fitting that this exceptional achievement comes in the 25th anniversary year of LJMU - another landmark in the history and journey of our university.”

The judging panel said: 

“The judges felt that the university demonstrated a clear strategic vision and contributed significantly locally, but also nationally and globally. The academic strength, management and financial stewardship are all contributing factors to their success.”

We at ECBM congratulate LJMU, and are proud to be part of its success story with our MBA and MSc programmes.

  6. Currently, there are many types of large-capacity water purifiers sold on the market that consumers do not know which product to choose. To get rid of that worry, why not try the Wapure WR109 water purifier? This product line uses RO reverse osmosis technology with 8 levels. The filtered water meets the Ministry of Health standards for drinking water quality QCVN 06-1: 2010 / BYT and meets drinking water demand of 500 people.
