We Know What Works

Faced with "sheep-dip" training, staff lose interest, faith and trust in the organisations they work for, plus it costs time and money, especially for refresher training for those staff that already know what they're doing.

So, wouldn't it be better if you could assess the knowledge of your people, check their understanding and evidence them putting their skills into action? That way, only the learning to fill gaps is required and you have evidence of competence ready for inspection.

We call this: Know, Understand, Do...

Know Understand Do
  • Know = learning
  • Understand = assessment  
  • Do = practice & observation 

So why not build a fit and safe workforce where trust can flourish between your teams and those that they support? The Care Quality Commission itself said of our system: “This is a good method of showing evidence of competence.”

Skills for Care states: "It is not possible to achieve the Care Certificate through completion of eLearning or completing a workbook alone."

A range of subjects with assessments are available and, where you have specific needs, we can work with you to create bespoke content - see here for our Course List.

With webinars, user guides and exceptional customer support all included in the price you pay, we never leave you to ‘go it alone’ if you need some guidance.

As all individuals have different learning styles, we also offer ‘blended’ learning via a number of classroom learning opportunities - see here for further information.

"The Care Certificate is not a mandatory requirement. However, the Care Quality Commission will expect that appropriate staff who are new to services which they regulate will achieve the competences required by the Care Certificate as part of their induction."
