The Care Certificate

The Care Certificate is a key requirement of the overall induction that health care employers must provide in order to meet the standards set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The Care Certificate is comprised of 15 individual Health and Social Care online training courses. The Care Certificate is delivered through our easy to use, online learning management portal. It is intended for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers, including Care home Support Workers, Health Care Assistants and those providing care support who have direct contact with patients.

The employer issues the Care Certificate itself subject to their being able to prove that the requirements of the Care Certificate have been achieved. Our online courses assist carers in achieving the required level of understanding. It is not possible to achieve the Care Certificate through completion of e-learning alone. Our online training courses provide a delegate with the knowledge, the practical skills however can only be acquired in the workplace.
