A few words from schools, colleges and nurseries already using EduCare for Education.

We’re already training over 16,000 schools, colleges and pre-schools in safeguarding and duty of care. Read what they had to say about EduCare below:

The New School at West Heath is an independent specialist school catering for secondary age students whose mainstream schooling has broken down. The majority of our students have suffered significant trauma in their lives and some have social, emotional and behavioural problems.

We decided that as child protection training was of such major importance to all staff here, and that this need was comprehensively met by EduCare’s child protection programmes, that we would feature them as part of our staff induction process. The obvious advantage was the flexibility in their application. People worked through it at their own pace, in their own time, at home or at work, and both individually and within a learning group.

We wanted to evaluate our investment in EduCare’s programmes so we designed a questionnaire that was put to all staff to elicit their views about how confident they felt handling child protection issues. An excellent return of these questionnaires gave us some great feedback, including:

Bill Whillock – Vice Principal – Care, The New School at West Heath

The degree of confidence staff expressed in knowing how to respond was very impressive. These results were borne out by qualitative information gleaned from the school’s three Child Protection Officers and satisfied our School Leadership Team that EduCare represented not only excellent value for money, but more importantly that our school is pro-active in making sure other people’s children are well looked after when they are residing with us and in our care.

Bill Whillock – Vice Principal – Care, The New School at West Heath

The programmes are flexible, the topics covered are valuable and the management reporting is really useful. Ofsted are pleased with it and the cost is reasonable too! I’d definitely recommend EduCare for Education!

Al Noor School, Birmingham

I would recommend EduCare for Education to other colleges. It’s convenient, clear and easy to use.

Nichola Routledge - Weymouth College

I have recommended EduCare for Education to other schools in my area. The programmes are very authoritative – they contain some brilliant modules which really help in the day-to-day running of the school.

Duggie Speight - Headteacher, Carleton Endowed School

EduCare for Education meets the requirements of Ofsted in showing evidence of training and knowledge. I would definitely recommend it to other schools.

Sue Stuart - Doncaster School for the Deaf

We’ve made EduCare for Education a mandatory part of staff training. It enables us to meet some of our statutory obligations with regards to safeguarding children, health and safety, food hygiene and first aid. All of our staff feel the child protection and safeguarding programmes are an effective way of reinforcing their obligations to the children in their care and we’ve even made the programmes a mandatory element of staff inductions.

Philip Moere - Principal, Abbey College, Worcestershire

We purchased EduCare for Education to allow us to have control over our staff training from an educational and financial point. It has far exceeded our expectations in that all our staff have been able to complete child protection, health and safety and food hygiene training for a financial outlay that has suited our small school perfectly. We construct our school policies as a team during staff inset and knowing that everyone has completed the training has helped establish the fact that everyone can take ownership of our essential policies for the welfare, care and protection of our pupils. During our recent inspection we were commended on our pastoral care and welfare of our pupils.

Johanna Staunton - Head Teacher, Laleham Lea School

We purchased EduCare for Education to enable us to train all our staff in one go, but at their own pace and in their own time. It’s very flexible and cost effective and the accredited courses are quality training. The online system has certainly met our expectations.

Penny Austin - Headteacher, Walthamstow Hall Junior School
