"At British School Muscat our employees are increasingly looking for CPD which is personalised to their needs and which they can access at a time and place that suits their busy professional and personal lives.
The EduCare online child protection modules enable our colleagues to access personalised, flexible, up to date and regular child protection training anytime and anywhere. On the successful completion of each module, colleagues print out a certificate which they place on their personnel file which provides an ongoing record of the child protection training they have completed. With over 150 staff employed at British School Muscat, the EduCare child protection training modules also provide the school with the confidence and reassurance that all colleagues have received regular and up-to date training regardless of when they joined the school.
Building on this successful, personalised and competitively priced professional development provided by EduCare, BSM colleagues are now accessing other EduCare online modules which are relevant to their particular roles in the school including health and safety, online safety and safer recruitment."
Kai Vacher, Principal, British School Muscat
“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.”
