What are Electronic Learning Credits (ELCs)?
Electronic Learning Credits, or ELCs, are pools of money set aside by the UK Government for UK Schools to spend on Multimedia products.

The money is distributed from central Government via Local Education Authorities (LEAs) to individual schools, which decide how to spend it.

Every school has an appointed ELC budget-holder holder (eg; your head, head of department, Bursar or ICT coordinator). All teachers are invited to recommend resources for purchase.
