EduCare for Sport® e-learning package


The MTA is committed to fostering progression and encouraging good practice. MTA has teamed up with EduCare, experts in safeguarding and duty of care, to offer MTA members access to the EduCare for Sport® package of safeguarding training courses at the exclusive discounted rate of £25 (normal price £75) plus VAT.

About EduCare®

The EduCare for Sport® package

EduCare for Sport® consists of 14 online learning courses tailored specifically for the sport and leisure sector and includes essential duty of care training. These courses are written by experts and ensure you are kept up-to-date with the latest guidance and legislation, while providing certificates as evidence of learning. For more information on EduCare for Sport® and the courses offered, visit https://www.educare.co.uk/educare-for-sport-clubs

 
Please note: For those candidates undertaking the Mountain Training Coaching scheme, the initial required Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport course needs to be a face-to-face session. Online training can be an option for any additonal/further training. Completion of a safeguarding course is not a compulsory component of any other Mountain Training award scheme, but it is valuable CPD.
