What Does The Care Certificate Entail?

The Care Certificate was introduced in accordance with the 2013 Cavendish Report’s recommendations to:

  • Outline the specialised knowledge, skills, and requirements that will guarantee a compassionate and caring level of service.

All carers, healthcare assistants, and social professionals can enrol in the Care Certificate programme:

  • Anyone who, throughout the first 12 weeks, are either new to the workforce or new to care.

Care Certificate: How Does It Work?

The Care Certificate is divided into two sections:

  • Training
  • Putting skills to use at work.

We can assist you with the training element of the job; either you may attend an open course, or one of our professionals can conduct our high impact classroom training course at your place of employment.

Care professionals, healthcare assistants, and social workers can obtain the knowledge they need to work towards achieving the Care Certificate by enrolling in our Care Certificate Training Classroom Course.

This implies that your company will require proof that you can put what you’ve learned into practice at work after we’ve given you the training.

On the day of training, you will receive a Care Certificate booklet, which you will fill out with information you have learned. After you have shown this expertise, you can take this book to work and have your employers sign off.
