What is EduCare for Health?

EduCare for Health is an online learning service that will help to ensure your setting is always up-to-date on essential areas of your duty of care, from safeguarding children and adults at risk, food hygiene and health and safety, through to data protection, infection control and professional development.

A few words from those already using EduCare for Health


“We have found EduCare for Health to be the most flexible way for staff with varying work patterns to complete their mandatory training. They can work at a time and place to suit them and complete the programmes at their own pace. Our staff have found the content interesting and the system easy to use, and we now use the service as part of the induction process for new recruits.” – Chartwell Dental Clinic, Watford


“I like the modular delivery of the programmes and the fact that I can access management reports so that I know which people have undertaken the learning and exactly how they got on with it. It can also highlight any gaps in people’s knowledge that we can remedy if necessary.” - Noeleen Brown, Nurse Teacher, Portland Hospital for Women and Children


“All of our volunteers at Healthy Children in Healthy Families have found EduCare’s training both useful and worthwhile – they’ve responded in a very positive way to EduCare’s training methods. We’ll continue to use EduCare for Health as part of our volunteers’ inductions and would like to thank EduCare and all their staff who have looked after us wonderfully.” - Martyn Rubery – Health Services Responsibility, Healthy Children in Healthy Families, Coventry City Council

A human brain cannot sense pain. Fact. So a headache has nothing to do with your brain hurting. (Sorry to those affected who complain about working too hard.) Actually, a headache is a pain sensed in the muscles and nerves of the head and neck, including the meninges (tissue around the brain).     Your local doctor would classify your headache into two rather broad categories: primary and secondary.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) was declared illegal as long ago as 1985, and yet this year there are still 24,000 girls and young women at risk of FGM, with over 66,000 UK victims living with the consequences.      FGM is physical, emotional and sexual abuse, so it is important that everyone who has contact with children and young people is aware of it and reports their concerns or a disclosure to their designated safeguarding person immediately.
