Educ8 is the fastest growing online training tool for all election-related activities in the UK. Unlike other commercial training solutions available, it doesn't just focus on Poll Clerk and Presiding Officer training, it also includes training for those working at the count and postal vote opening sessions, as well as other year-round functions such as door-to-door and telephone canvassing. Furthermore, it also includes modules on COVID-19 safety and GDPR - meaning it can be used by departments other than those focused on election delivery.

It has been designed to deliver assurance for administrators that the right content is delivered to the right people in the right manner. It also uses engaging online activities and tests to improve and monitor learning outcomes for trainees.

So what sets Educ8 apart from other online training products?

  • Educ8 is the only fully customisable training tool for elections in the UK

  • Educ8 doesn’t rely on generic content for all users, irrespective of their role on election day

  • Educ8 allows you to provide tailored training content specifically for Poll Clerks, Presiding Officers and Polling Station Inspectors

  • Educ8 content is dynamic, meaning trainees aren’t subjected to the same exercises election after election

  • Educ8 is designed and maintained by Democracy Counts – ensuring that ongoing support doesn’t rely on third-party suppliers

  • Educ8 pricing is based upon a flat fee for your local authority – so you can add extra trainees without incurring additional costs

Moreover, we can get you set-up and ready to go-live within 24 hours of your order being placed. So, if the worst happens and you have to change your training plans, you can rely on Educ8 to provide you with the contingency arrangements you need.
