Following the recommendations of the Cavendish Report 2013, The Care Certificate was introduced to:-
Build on and replace the Common Induction Standards (CIS) and National Minimum Training Standards (NMTS)
Set out specific learning outcomes, competences and standards that will ensure caring and compassionate quality of care
The Care Certificate course is available for all care workers, healthcare assistants and social care support workers:-
Who are new to the workplace or new to care (within first 12 weeks)
Or existing staff requiring refresher training
The Care Certificate delivers public confidence in the provision of healthcare services and sets out a benchmark to which standards can be assessed.
There’s two parts to the Care Certificate:-
We’re here to help you with the training bit - our high impact classroom training course can be delivered by our experts at your place of work OR you can attend an open course
Our ‘Care Certificate Training Classroom Course’ delivers the knowledge care workers, healthcare assistants and social care workers need to help them towards achieving the Care Certificate.
This means that once we have provided the training your employer still needs to see evidence that you can practice what you have learnt in the workplace -
You will be issued with a Care Certificate workbook on the day of training and you will record knowledge gained on the assessments pages.
Your tutor will then provide you with a unique stamp validating the training you have received.
This book can then be taken with you into the workplace for employers to sign off once this knowledge has been demonstrated.
Then your employer applies for your certificate
Courses can also be held at private venues for only £695 per training course (as little as £29.75 +VAT per person!)
Some modules within the Care Certificate can be offered via e-learning. If you prefer this form of training please visit HSG E-learning website
