The Care Certificate should be used as part of your induction as it sets out fundamental skills that you’ll need to work competently in health and social care. Learners will be expected to complete the Care Certificate if you’re new to care, employed as an adult social care worker or, providing direct care in a residential or nursing home, a hospice or are a home care worker. You can also complete the Care Certificate if you’re working in a non-care working role, for example if you work as a cook or a maintenance person.
You’ll be assessed on what you know and what you do to show you understand and can carry out the standards in your role. Each standard must be completed and assessed before you can work un-supervised. This should happen at the beginning of your employment and can be done with a phased approach. Once each individual standard is met, you may be allowed to do the areas of work covered by that standard without direct supervision, while still needing supervision in other areas.
