The Care Certificate is a set of standards that Health and Social Care professionals follow as part of an induction programme. It was developed by Skills for Care, Skills for Health, and Health Education England. The certification is completed in cares sectors such as domiciliary care, support work, or home care. For organisations, it ensures the Care Quality Commission (CQC) of the competence of its staff. Getting all the Care Certificate answers can be a daunting task, with 15 standards that need to be assessed.
Those new to working in social care need to cover all 15 standards of the Care Certificate. Therefore, a social care worker should aim to complete their learning within the first 12 weeks of beginning the process. To complete the certificate, a manager will need to sign off learning by completing observations.
The programme is designed to give Health and Social Care professionals the skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate and safe support.
To help you complete the learning, we’ve put together a list of support materials covering the care certificate answers. This includes links to the Skills for Care workbooks (a free printable study workbook) and eLearning courses for Health and Social Care.
