EduCare offer duty of care and safeguarding training solutions across many different industries.

Our customer base includes leading charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Action for Children, and prominent businesses including Kwik Fit Group, BAE Systems, British Gas Limited as well as large not-for-profit organisations.

We supply safeguarding and duty of care courses for apprenticeship providers to ensure they adhere to inspection requirements. We are also able to provide services for organisations that work with children or young adults and may require access to Child Protection training, including businesses that offer educational visits and school trips, those providing extracurricular activities, or companies that provide transport for schools, such as taxi and coach companies.




Businesses and Charities

We recognise our customers’ needs are varied, and whilst many of our customers simply choose to use one of our cost-effective e-learning packages for the EducationSport and Health sectors and adapt them to their needs, others may want to use our EduCare Essentials package, which ensures they receive the same great cost savings, but with content that is more relevant for their needs.
