Kate Atwell, EduCare's Director commented:

"The courses in the package have all been available to purchase individually online. By putting them together in this way, our all of our customers in the business or charity secctor can now access the same kinds of savings that those in the Education, Sport and Health sectors have long been enjoying.

"The cost of the twelve courses in the package would be over £260 when purchased individually. We have priced EduCare Essentials at a very competitive rate of £60 for an individual learner, a saving of over £200. This price becomes even more attractive when purchasing across an organisation for a number of employees or volunteers, reducing to as little as £5 per learner for our larger customers."
