Assessing Competence for the Care Certificate eLearning course

Do you ask your trainers and assessors to evidence their experience, qualifications and skills? If yes, good job! If not, why not? Surely you want to know the quality of service to expect. Just because a person can talk the talk, it doesn't always mean they can walk the walk. These days, we can review ratings when we purchase goods and services but what happens if ratings information is not available?

Skills for Care states "To assess the Care Certificate you must have a thorough understanding of and direct experience in what you’re assessing. You must also be confident and competent in workplace assessment."

So, who assesses the assessor to ensure they are competent? We can help you to do this quickly and effectively. This online course is designed to support assessors to demonstrate they have the knowledge and skills to be a competent Care Certificate assessor.

This online training course has been designed specifically for Assessors and people responsible for assessing the Care Certificate in a social care setting. It may also be useful to a wider audience of people who would like to know more about the role of the assessor in a management context.
