Care Certificate Course


It is expected that new members of staff entering the care sector achieve the competency underlined in the Care Certificate. The duration of training varies depending on each delegates’ circumstances, although the Care Certificate takes, on average, 12 weeks to complete. The course covers the 15 care standards underlined by Health Education England and Skills for Care and is a replacement for the Common Induction Standards and National Minimum Training Standards. The Care Certificate was created as a set of guidelines that supports and protects patients, care workers, care providers and anyone they may employ. By developing the skills needed to work in the health social care sector, the care certificate ensures that the worker is adequately trained to provide the best care to their patients.

We are now offering an all-in-one in-house training week in which each of the 15 standards of care are covered in detail so that staff are best prepared to complete their assessment. In this week, the 15 Standards enshrined in the Care Certificate are covered over a period of 5 days.
