What is the care certificate

What is the care certificate?

The Care Certificate is an identified set of standards for the Health and Care sector.  It’s for

  • Health Care Assistants
  • Assistant Practitioners
  • Care Support Workers
  • NHS clinical support roles with direct patient

The Certificate is designed for those who are new into care.  It gives them, their colleagues and employers the confidence that they have the necessary introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high-quality care and support.

Carers Awareness Online Training Course

The Care Certificate is based on 15 standards, all of which must be completed.

The approach can be phased - as each learner meets an individual standard their supervisor may allow them to practice with indirect or remote supervision against that standard.

The assessment of the Care Certificate should be as rigorous as the assessment of any formal qualification.  The learner and employer are jointly responsible for recording the documentation of assessment and evidence of practice in the workbooks provided.  This record will be used in gathering evidence for the Care Certificate and can be used as evidence when changing roles or moving between employers.

Health & Social Care Course Awareness Bundle (11 Courses) Online Training Course

Our easy-to-use online learning system records and evidences the knowledge required for each of the 15 standards.  It comes with both a Work-based Learning Competency Booklet, and the Care Certificate workbooks for each module.

Each learner can follow the course online or from a printed version.  Following completion, they take a multiple-choice test either online or from the booklet.  They will then be graded.  The learner has the opportunity to retake the test.

To support new workers and the training process as a whole, we provide work-based Learning Competency Assessment booklets.  A manager uses the workbooks to make the assessment.  On successful completion of all 15 care standards, the manager issues the learner with the ‘Care Certificate’.  The process is then complete.

"Every course was superbly compiled and the online learning environment was really user friendly"

"HL Online Training has the widest variety of health care training courses. Every course was superbly compiled and the online learning environment was really user friendly. I put a handful of staff through the courses at first and have decided to use HL for all my staff. My team found the whole learning process straightforward and unpressured. They enjoyed the fact that they could study and learn at their pace and at a time that suited them. The courses from HL are great value for money and now make training for my establishment a breeze. Thank you HL Online Training"
