About the Care Certificate
The course covers the 15 care standards underlined by Health Education England and Skills for Care and is a replacement for the Common Induction Standards and National Minimum Training Standards. The Care Certificate sets the guidelines that support and protect patients, care workers, care providers and anyone they may employ. By developing the skills needed to work in the health social care sector, the care certificate ensures that the worker is adequately trained to provide the best care to their patients.
