Keir McDonald

Founder and Director, EduCare

Keir McDonald (MBE) started EduCare thirty years ago with just a handful of talented people.

At the time, he had little idea that his company’s e-learning programmes would end up teaching more than three million people about duty of care issues, including health and safety, across a range of sectors including education, industry, and sport. In acknowledgement of his work and achievement in safeguarding children, Keir was honoured with an MBE for Services to Children in 2012.

The organisation is an online training solutions company that specialises in child protection and vulnerable adult care courses.  It is associated with both Kidscape and Family Lives and customers include over 4,000 schools and colleges and 12,000 pre-schools as well as councils, the NHS, charities and more.
