EduCare for Education® is our comprehensive e-learning service that will help meet your key duty of care and compliance training needs.

This package comprises a variety of essential online safeguarding and duty of care courses, created specifically for the Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) sectors.

This training is designed to impart essential information and motivate staff and students to take action if they suspect something is wrong – whatever their role or responsibility.

Our courses can also be mapped to a college or university’s course curriculum and used by students or apprentices as part of their self-directed learning or independent studies.

If colleges are placing students or apprentices into industry for work placements or work-based learning, our courses can also be used to ensure placement organisations have access to relevant safeguarding and duty of care training.
