The Scottish Childminding Association is the only organisation dedicated to supporting childminders in Scotland. Around 80% of Scotland’s childminders are members of SCMA, and their main aim is to promote childminding as a quality childcare service. Together the SCMA and EduCare have developed twelve distance-learning programmes.
“We approached EduCare because we are very keen that all our members have access to the skills and knowledge that will ensure their childminding business thrives. Whilst we run many workshops and training events, we serve a diverse and geographically remote membership, so online learning seemed ideal because everyone can access it.
“We have now launched a range of twelve programmes. Each has its own personalised certificate that members can download when they achieve the programme pass mark, so the learning is robust and tested.
“The response from our members has been marvellous. They really appreciate all the programmes and we are delighted that we have been able to offer them this new flexible way of learning.
“The EduCare learning management system is very easy-to-use, making it an ideal way for our members to learn with SCMA, understand Scottish government guidance and contribute to their continuing professional development.
“We expect all our dealings with EduCare to be highly professional throughout and from the writing and design to the delivery and hosting of the courses, they don’t disappoint.
