What are the Care Certificate Standards?
The Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the non-regulated workforce in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that these workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.
The Care Certificate:
- applies across health and social care;
- links to competences (National Occupational Standards) and units in qualifications;
- covers what is required to be caring;
- will equip workers with the fundamental skill they need to provide quality care;
- gives workers a basis from which they can further develop their knowledge and skills as their career progresses.
Our ‘quality assured’ programme of training modules selected specifically for the Health and Social Care sector, provide the training and support for employers to meet their statutory obligations and enable the staff to enhance their work-skills and be rewarded with a formal qualification from an Awarding Body.
