The Care Certificate

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’s made up of 15 minimum standards that should be covered if you are ‘new to care’ and should form part of a robust induction programme.

The Care Certificate was developed jointly by Skills for Care,  Health Education England and  Skills for Health.

Unfortunately RMBC and DMBC have no process to sign off PAs competency but they are welcome to join the online E-learning as this will give the knowledge which can be embedded whilst at work. We are talking with both councils about this issue so please let us know if it is something you would like to do.
