The Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the non-regulated workforce in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.

The Care certificate is based on 15 fundamental standards of patient care. All standards are to be completed prior to Care Certificate completion. Along with the presentations viewable from the top right hand side of the page, we have supplied below all 15 standards work books for information only. It is not mandatory to complete the workbook assessments but they have been provided for information only. If you do wish to complete the workbook assessments please discuss with the Care Certificate Team.

Each standard is underpinned by full learning outcomes and assessment criteria.
Evaluation of knowledge is completed by a combination of face-to-face, e-learning and Clinical assessments.

Learners must also complete a series of work based observations along side their line manager, supervisor or other suitable professional.
