About the induction course
The Care Certificate is an agreed set of standards that define the knowledge, skills and behaviours expected of specific job roles in the health and social care sectors.
It outlines the minimum standards that should be covered if you are ‘new to care’ and should form part of a robust induction programme. This induction course compiles all the necessary courses into one reduced cost induction pack.
We recommend that a new fulltime employee should complete the Care Certificate within 12 weeks of starting their new role. Skills for Care suggest that experience from pilot sites demonstrates this is feasible for new fulltime staff.
Although the Care Certificate is designed for new staff, it also offers opportunities for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge and skills.
After this course you will be able to:
Begin the career journey for those new to care.
Operate within the foundation for health and adult social care integration.
Prove that the requirements of the Care Certificate have been properly achieved.
Be able to issue a Care Certificate to the person who has completed it.
Who is this course for?
This induction is a must for any new members of staff that you need to train up in a quick, and affordable way.
