EduCare for Education is an annual licence which provides unlimited access to a range of CPD Certified training programmes written or endorsed by subject experts.
Programmes cover topics such as:
- Safer Recruitment in Education
- Child Protection in Education
- Online Safety
- Health and Safety in Education
- Food Hygiene
- Equality and Diversity
- First Aid
- Data Protection
Each is independently verified at between 1 and 6 hours of CPD by the CPD Certification Service.
Personalised certificates are provided upon programme completion to provide evidence of learning, and management reports enable you to track who has completed the training.
Two of the programmes included in the COBIS / Educare online training bundle are 'Safer Recruitment' and 'Child Protection in Education'.
Safer Recruitment takes participants through the recruitment process, including planning stages, person specifications, advertising, reference checking and background checks, and maintaining awareness and vigilance once the new recruit is a member of your organisation.
Child Protection in Education covers the fundamentals of safeguarding and protection for anyone who comes into contact with children and young people.
“We are currently using Educare online programmes across all 7 schools in the Group as they provide us with a flexible, on-demand solution for online staff training and development in a wide range of areas, including Safeguarding, the Prevent Duty, Child Protection, Safer Recruitment, First Aid, etc. All courses and resources are fully up-to-date and staff are able to sign up and study at their own pace, take the assessments at the end of each module and download certification. With a centralised LMS, the platform allows our Training & Development Department to monitor and report on progress in real time across the organisation. EduCare’s advice team are always on hand to help with any administrative questions or issues which may occur from time to time.
I would have no hesitation in recommending EduCare’s services to other British Schools operating internationally.”
