Health Education England (HEE), Skills for Care and Skills for Health have worked together to develop the Care Certificate, designed to meet the requirements set out in the Cavendish Review. It aims to equip health and social care support workers with the knowledge and skills which they need to provide safe, compassionate care. The Care Certificate was officially launched in March 2015 and Employers are expected to implement the Care Certificate for all applicable new starters.

Community Case Management Services Limited are pleased to now provide comprehensive training of the Certificate for all Support Workers and Team Leaders.

The Care Certificate is a set of standards that social care and health workers adhere to in their daily working life and are the new minimum standards that should be covered as part of induction training of new care workers.

The Care Certificate consists of 15 Standards requiring knowledge and skills assessment. The Learner will be provided with a comprehensive referenced portfolio and a competency booklet. Classroom learning takes place with directed discussion groups and group exercises as well as individual workbooks and question sheets, whilst skills assessments take place in the workplace.

Designed with non-regulated workers in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same induction - learning the same skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support. Although the Care Certificate is designed for new staff, it also offers opportunities for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge. 

This training is delivered over 3 days by an experienced trainer and assessor who has over 35 years’ experience in nursing in the private sector and in the NHS and 10 years teaching experience. She ran a Care Certificate programme which was one of the Pilot Groups for the Care Certificate. This course was later awarded the Quality Assurance Mark by Skills for Health.

The Care Certificate Training is open to the public as well and to enrol candidates on the training please contact recruitment@ccmservices.co.uk
