A01 Care Certificate

The Care Certificate was introduced in April 2015 and it is now expected of all those working as healthcare assistants and adult social care workers to undertake this learning as part of their induction programme.

There are 15 standards that make up the Care Certificate.

The standards take account of: the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England the Social Care Commitment, which is the social care sector’s promise to provide people who need care and support with high-quality services the Chief Nursing Officer for England’s ‘6Cs’. These are care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.

About this Course

The Care Certificate is delivered through our innovative and award winning eLearning platform to provide evidence of each of the 15 standards. Both staff and managers will easily be able to keep track of the progress through this essential course.

We have also produced downloadable workbooks and certificates to complement this course. Definitely the most cost effective way to deliver the Care Certificate.


    The Care Certificate course covers the knowledge content of the Care Certificate but the certificate cannot be completed based on use of this course alone.

    In addition to the knowledge content, the Care Certificate includes almost 50 areas of workplace assessment. Your employer has a responsibility to provide an induction to ensure that you have the skills, knowledge and understanding you need to do your job.


    The Care Certificate may be used as part of your induction as it sets out fundamental skills that you will need to be competent when working in health and social care.

    Each standard must be completed and assessed before you can work without direct supervision in any setting. This should happen at the beginning of your employment and can be done in a phased way.

    As you meet each individual standard, you could be allowed to do the areas of work covered by that standard without direct supervision, while still needing supervision in other areas.
