Care Certificate

As of April 2015 the Care Certificate replaced the Common Induction Standards.  Mangers have a duty to ensure the Care Certificate framework forms part of a robust and well executed induction.  The Care Certificate sets out explicitly the learning outcomes, competences and standards of care that will be expected in both sectors, ensuring that the health and social care workers are caring, compassionate and provides quality care.

Workforce Development held a series of short briefing sessions where the standards and expectations placed upon employers were explained.  

There is a range of materials available to help employers implement the Care Certificate click on the image below to access resources.
