EduCare for Health: Health & Social Care

Care Providers and Healthcare organisations have duties to protect those who are in their care. The CQC regularly inspect providers to ensure they meet the fundamental standards of care and ask 5 key questions - are you safe, caring, effective, responsive and well-led?

Training plays a key part in helping organisations fulfil their legal and moral obligations to whose who are vulnerable, and this package of courses from EduCare has been designed to do just that.

With up-to-date content written and reviewed by HSC professionals, EduCare for Health & Social Care is our comprehensive e-learning service that includes essential training for health and social care staff together with a robust reporting suite that evidences learning to inspectors.

The service contains core content that maps to both the Care Certificate* and the UK Core Skills Training Framework for health (CSTF) and will ensure staff are always up-to-date with key duty of care issues to help maintain a safer and more compliant workplace.

*Please note: The learning courses provide the underpinning knowledge of each subject, but individual 'on-the-job' competence needs to be observed.
