    What customers say

    We put our Group Leaders through the Child Protection courses. For us, the main benefits of EduCare were that it covered the NVQ requirements and was a useful, flexible training tool to reach people who need the information but could not always attend a training session.

    Jo Mortimer, Apprenticeship Course Manager, PGL Travel

    This information was very new to me. It has opened my eyes and given me insight into things I always took for granted. It was very useful and informative and comes at an opportune moment for me since I am just starting at a Secondary School. The information learned will be fully applied. Thank you very much. You have changed my life.
