CareTutor and all of our courses are accredited by Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and endorsed by Skills for Care.

All our certificates contain the CPD and Skills for Care logos, meaning that wherever you go, your future employers will know that you’ve been trained to the highest standards.

On top of being an endorsed provider, CareTutor is also a Skills for Care Centre of Excellence, a quality mark awarded to fewer than 10% of providers in the sector. Learn more about our accreditaitons here.

We are the only provider of health and social care courses in the UK to use interactive video-based eLearning which has much higher engagement and retention rates than only text based eLearning.

Did you know 80% of people are visual learners?

We use a blend of live action footage and animations to engage your staff, and make sure what they’re learning sticks. We’ve heard from our managers that their trainees would find our training much easier to recall when on site and facing these scenarios than text-based training.

That depends upon how much training you would like to deliver. Our affordable, high quality eLearning packages are a big selling point for our customers. 

We offer both an Annual Subscription package and a Pay-as-you-Go package. Our Pay-as-you-go pricing starts from £1.49 per person per course, including certification. Please read about our packages in more detail on our Pricing page here.

During your staff training journey there are a host of reporting tools and applications you can access as a manager.

Our Traffic Light Training Matrix is an example of an essential tool to keep track of your user’s course progress and their certifications for renewals. It is easily downloadable as a spreadsheet and a tool many of our managers use to show compliance to inspectors. Learn more here.

Yes, we can provide most of the training available on our eLearning portal as DVDs.

BVS Training is our DVD branch that has been supplying Video Training to the Care Sector for over 20 years. If there are products you are interested in, please visit www.bvs.co.uk or contact us for more information on classroom-based training.
