I have a question about the content of courses
Our courses have been written in conjunction with our Expert Partners and are regularly updated. If you have a question about the content of one of our courses please get in touch.
What level are EduCare courses?
Courses are typically either level 2 or level 3 as graded against the nationally accepted levels for training courses. See each course description for more information in our course library.
What qualification do I receive for completing courses?
Each module of an EduCare course provides the learner with one hour of CPD. To find out more about CPD, please visit The CPD Certification Service’s website. Courses in our Health & Social Care service are mapped against the knowledge aspects of the Care Certificate as well as the Core Skills Training Framework for Health. We have a mapping document available if you require further information.
How long does it take to complete an EduCare course?
Each module is equivalent to one hour of CPD. So a one-module course will take up to one hour, and a four-module course will take up to four hours. Where there is a proficiency test as part of the course, this equates to an additional hour of CPD.
Who writes EduCare courses?
We pride ourselves on the quality of our courses. We work with a wide range of subject experts who play a key role in contributing to, reviewing and endorsing our training. This ensures our courses are always accurate, up-to-date and of the highest quality.
Can I print copies of the module content or the questions and answers?
Every module of our courses will have a ‘Module – PDF’ saved as Resource which you will be able to print. Copies of questions and answers are not available to save or print. If you would like to identify questions were answered incorrectly, please contact our customer services team.
