End Of Life Carer

I got to grips with training really quickly. I found the courses really have helped me

I don’t really like studying,  I am care assistant at a private care home looking after end of life patients. I love my job and always look for ways to try and do it better. I soon found that there were plenty of courses that could really help me do my job better. The  system is so easy to use and because the courses feel like bite-sized chunks rather than daunting training programs I got to grips with training really quickly. I found the courses really have helped me and I know I am helping my patients better thanks to the very nifty, very affordable training.”

Farhan Fuentes

Health Care Worker

I Can study at any time and there is no pressure to finish or rush the course

“As a health worker, I love to keep up to date with many aspects of my work but finding the time and money to attend training courses for my own reasons has always been a problem. I have friends who have been using online training for their work and until I started looking I never realised that this would be the answer for me.  It was affordable and lots of small, short courses that were perfect for keeping my knowledge up to date. I can study at any time and there is no pressure to finish or rush the course, having a tutor to communicate with allows is just a bonus.”

Remy Nunez

Home Supervisor

We needed to get our staff up to an improved level of understanding

“HL Online Training has been a major part of improving our care giving. Taking over a care facility is always a challenge, especially one where there were a few problems. We needed to get our staff up to an improved level understanding about their work and many needed training. I had used online training before and decided to look into using it for our facility. Within days of implementing , staff morale increased and we soon found that our care team wanted more training and thus we allowed them to explore. Training also provides with clear insight into what my staff are studying and how they are performing.”

Writen By Professionals in Health & Social Care

All the courses are written by health and social care professionals, following the relevant frameworks, and CPD accredited.

The social care courses remain Care Quality Commission (CQC) compliant, whilst the health care and primary care courses are aligned to the Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).

Why The Care Certificate Is Valuable

The Care Certificate is a set number of standards which have been carefully developed by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health. These standards, in the form of The Care Certificate, should make up part of the induction training when training new care workers, as these are what health workers, and social care workers, have to adhere to as part of their employment position. We offer this in an affordable way, potentially saving you £££`s.

 

Who needs to complete The Care Certificate, and what are the benefits?

The Care Certificate benefits everyone in, and connected to, health and social care. As something that links up to National Occupational Standards and units in qualifications, this is something that can be seen as the first step on the career ladder into any health or social care specialism. The Care Certificate enables workers who are just starting out in the industry to have the confidence that they are doing the job right and working to the same required standards as those members of staff who are more experienced. It then enables these health and care workers to deliver a high standard of care to their clients and patients. Although this certificate is most commonly undertaken by new employees, it is always there for existing employees who are in need of brushing up on their knowledge and understanding of the field. For CQC regulated providers, the Care Certificate is something that is expected of care workers who are joining health and social care, from April 2015 onward.

The Care Certificate is for all care support workers, clinical NHS workers, assistant practitioners, healthcare assistants, and anyone else who is working directly with patients in their everyday role. Such workers could be health or care workers in old people homes, mental health services, hospitals, GP Surgeries or perhaps going out into patient’s homes.

What does the Care Certificate consist of?

The Care Certificate comes complete with all the resources that the learner might need; both online learning features and workbooks, with relevant information that can be viewed online, or printed out for ease of use and reading. Each section provides the relevant advice on that specific ‘standard’ module. After working through the booklet, there is a multiple choice test available to which they will be graded, however if this is not passed successfully, the learner is given the opportunity to retake the test.

In order to support the new employees going through their initial training process, The Care Certificate package comes complete with Work Based Learning Competency Assessment Booklets, as well as a downloadable workbook which provides guidance every step of the way. Upon successful completion of all the 15 care standards within the course, the employer can issue the learner with a ‘Care Certificate’, which evidences that they have undertaken this compulsory training.

If you are looking for a straightforward way for staff to complete The Care Certificate online course, be sure to Contact Us at HL Online Training and arrange for us to set you up on our system. Our aim is to provide this online training via a smooth and comprehensive platform, which the learner can then undertake at a time that is suitable to them. This takes the hassle away from the employer, allowing them to focus on their day-job, and hands over the technical side to us, where we are on hand to offer any support the user may need.

Care Manager

I got to grips with training really quickly. I found the courses really have helped me

“The  training has proven to be an asset to our small care home. We have a small team and we really want to give the best care possible. When it comes to training our challenge has always been time as we cannot really afford for our carers to be away for days at a time. One of our care givers mentioned online training and I did some research. I found HL Online training and I asked a few questions about it. The response was first class.”

John Bolton

Care Manager

I Can study at any time and there is no pressure to finish or rush the course

As an HR Manager in a growing chain of care homes, training has always been something I have struggled with. Trying to find the right courses and having some form of continuity to know my staff are all trained to the same level has been difficult. I had never considered online training before but had heard a lot of talk about it. Having presented the option to the management teams at each care home the option made sense both for training and financially. Today HL Online Training has become a vital part of our business, training staff well and keeping costs down..

John Bolton

Care Manager

We needed to get our staff up to an improved level of understanding

I am a care assistant in a busy nursing home. Cost and finding the time are the two biggest problems I faced when looking at increasing my skills. I had no idea that training could be so easy and so affordable online, I never realised the courses were all accredited either.  I can study when it suits me at the pace I am comfortable with. I study in my lunch breaks and on those quiet nights where the residents in the care home are sleeping I have to stay away. I am bettering myself and making things work around my training.

Frequently Asked Questions - The Care Certificate

The Care Certificate is the minimum training, supervision and assessment that those staff new to care (health and adult social care) should receive as part of induction.

The Care Certificate is intended to be used at the start of a career in health and social care. It ensures that people joining the sector can receive appropriate training, support and workplace assessment before they start to deliver care out of the line of sight of more experienced workers.

It provides a foundation for those working in healthcare support and social care worker roles in England, ensuring that the new worker is able to provide a compassionate and caring service.

There are fifteen standards that must be completed, involving knowledge learning, practical skills development and workplace assessments. Completion of all standards is required to attain the Care Certificate.

What does the Care Certificate Cover?

The Care Certificate consists of the following 15 Standards:

1. Understand Your Role

2. Your Personal Development

3. Duty of Care

4. Equality and Diversity

5. Work in a Person Centred Way

6. Communication

7. Privacy and Dignity

8. Fluids and Nutrition

9. Awareness of Mental health, Dementia and Learning Disabilities

10. Safeguarding Adults

11. Safeguarding Children

12. Basic Life Support

13. Health and Safety

14. Handling Information

15. Infection Prevention and Control

Following the report of the Francis Inquiry in 2013 which identified serious failures in healthcare provision, Camilla Cavendish was asked by the Secretary of State to review and make recommendations on the recruitment, learning and development, management and support of healthcare assistants and social care support workers, to help ensure that this workforce provided compassionate care.

The resulting report, The Cavendish Review: An Independent Review into Healthcare Assistants and Support Workers in the NHS and Social Care Settings (July 2013) found that preparation of healthcare assistants and social care support workers for their roles providing care was inconsistent. The report recommended the development of a Certificate of Fundamental Care – the “Care Certificate”.

Related resources: The Cavendish review: an independent review into healthcare assistants and support workers in the NHS and social care settings, The Francis Enquiry

The Care Certificate is part of a structured induction but does not replace all of the learning required for staff induction. As well as the Care Certificate standards new staff will be expected to have information, knowledge and competencies specific to the environment in which care will be provided. 

For example, new staff may receive induction on how to report accidents, and what to do in case of fire which will be specific to the location in which they work. The Care Certificate programme will not focus on the skills and knowledge needed to work safely and effectively in a particular location. The content of this remains the employer’s responsibility.

Related Resources: Care Certificate Standards, Care Certificate Framework

New Workers, New to Care

The Care Certificate is aimed at the following types of workers joining a health or adult social care organisation without any past training or sector experience.

Healthcare

Healthcare Support Workers / Health Care Assistants / Assistant Practitioners / any individual giving support to clinical roles in the NHS where there is any direct contact with patients.

Adult social care

Care Assistant / Care Worker / Homecare Worker / Care Support Workers. These workers will be giving direct care in in residential, nursing homes and hospices, home care workers, domiciliary care staff.

The employer is responsible for assuring the quality of training, supervision and assessment of the ability of their healthcare support and care workers.

Providers of care have a duty to ensure that people are safe, and their health and welfare needs are met. They must ensure that their staff are competent to carry out their work and are properly trained, supervised and appraised.

Employers are responsible for assuring the quality of the teaching and assessment of the Care Certificate. It is expected that employers will use the standards to ensure that staff receive the training necessary so that they can develop the knowledge and competencies necessary to provide safe and compassionate care of the highest quality.

Possession of the Care Certificate will be one part of the evidence that they may need to make that decision. However, employers will naturally want to understand more about their new workers and what additional training and support may be required.

Yes, but the Care Certificate cannot be fully achieved through the use of these training approaches.

E-learning, workbooks and films can all be useful approaches to cover some parts of the Care Certificate learning and a mixture of all approaches can be helpful. However, the Care Certificate includes skills that must be assessed in the workplace. We include the competency assessment booklets.
