Registered Centre Status

An ESB Registered Centre is one accepted by ESB in China to offer ESB courses, assessments and qualifications. It signifies a commitment to ESB in China quality assurance standards in teaching and learning, in preparing candidates for assessment, compliance with administrative and regulatory requirements and continuing professional liaison with ESB in China. Only an ESB Registered Centre may offer ESB qualifications in China.

Schools / Centres wishing to offer ESB assessments in China need to undergo a formal recognition process. As part of this process, prospective centres must demonstrate that they have sufficient systems, resources and quality assurance arrangements in place for the delivery of the proposed qualifications.

There are three stages of required procedures in order to become an ESB Registered Centre in China.

ESB注册中心

“注册中心”指获得ESB认可在中国提供ESB课程、考试和资格证书的中心。这表明中心诚心按照ESB中国质量保证标准执行教学,为学生ESB资格证书考试的行政和管理工作达到ESB中国的要求,并保持与ESB中国沟通相关工作。只有获得ESB注册中心才可以在中国开设ESB资格证书课程。

希望提供ESB课程、考试和资格证书的学校或中心必须通过正规的认可程序。中心必须提供以下信息:有充分的系统、资源以及保证质量的程序来确保成功地开设课程和举办考试。

成为注册中心由以下三个步骤组成。

Become a Registered Centre: stage by stage

以下为ESB中国注册中心的三个步骤:

Stage 1: Application

The first stage of the process is to complete and submit the initial ‘Application Form’ which provides an outline of your organisation’s current background and resources, as well as plans in terms of using ESB courses, assessments and qualifications. The purpose of this stage is to ascertain whether there is compatibility between the courses, assessments and qualifications ESB in China is offering, and your organisation’s capacity to deliver them.

Stage 2: Registration

After this, if ESB in China believe your organisation and its learners have the potential to benefit from ESB courses and / or qualifications, you will be invited to undergo the second stage of our registration process.

The registration process will entail completion of a more detailed Self-Evaluation Form. This is to enable us to gain a deeper understanding of your resources, senior management, teaching and learning regime and operational plan.

This may or may not be followed by an “on-site” inspection visit by one of our Inspectors. Should a one day on-site inspection visit be deemed necessary there is a one-off fee to cover this cost. Please see our latest ESB in China Inspection Fee document for further details.

第一步:申请

首先,请填写并递交“申请表”,提供贵机构目前的背景和资源信息,以及对提供ESB课程、考试和资格证书的规划。这一步旨在评估贵机构是否符合提供ESB课程、考试和资格证书的能力。

第二步:注册

如果我们认为贵机构及其学生能够从ESB课程和资格证书中受益,我们将邀请贵机构进入下一步的注册过程。

此注册程序需要填写详细的“自我评估表”,此表的目的是为我们提供贵校/机构考察资源、高层管理人员、教学以及行政计划。

视乎贵校/机构对教学以及教育管理的实际情况和经验,有可能要通过一天的“现场”审查。具体费用请参考最新审查费。

In either case, Inspector(s) will complete a written Report which will also be made available to the Centre. The Centre will have the opportunity to rectify any material errors in fact on the Report with respect to physical resources etc but may not question the judgements of the Inspector(s) as such.

The Centre Self-Evaluation Form and subsequent Report is in the form of a table covering three main areas: Management & Administration, Facilities & Resources, Teaching & Learning. Judgements of the Inspectors will be evidence-based and three possible outcomes noted in each area, these being:

a) Completely Satisfactory
b) Satisfactory / Actions Recommended, or
c) Not Satisfactory / Reasons.

Where the result overall is either (a) or (b) ESB Registered Centre status will be awarded.

Stage 3: Recognition

At the third stage, following successful inspection and recognition, Centres will be required to sign a ‘Centre Agreement’ and also to complete a ‘Centre Recognition Form’. At this point, the Annual Registration Fee becomes payable.

无论需不需要通过现场审查,评估官都会提供一份关于贵校/机构申请的报告。如果内容有误,中心可以要求更正,但中心无权质疑评估官的最终结论。

自我评估表和随后的报告会以表格形式提供三大领域的信息:行政管理、设施和资源,以及教学。评估官将根据证据来总结贵机构以下三个方面可能的结果:

  1. 完全满意
  2. 达到要求 / 建议改善之处,或
  3. 达不到要求 / 原因

第三步:认

如果贵校/机构顺利通过评估和认可,贵中心将与ESB中国签署一份“中心协议”,并填写“中心认可表格”。此时,中心应缴ESB中国的年费。
