Care Certificate from ProTrainings is Skills for Care Endorsed

This Care Certificate course covers the knowledge-based units and includes 15 standards and recommendations set out by the Health Education England, Skills for Care and Skills for Health and is designed for all new employees. The course is mapped and covers all of the required Knowledge-Based Units and delegates will be provided with full evidence-based learning statements to document the learning process during the course, this is in addition to the final exam.

ProTrainings are Skills for Care Endorsed for both our classroom and e-learning courses. This means that our training meets the high standards expected by Skills for Care. You can also assure quality training as ProTrainings are one of the few "Skills for Care Centres of Excellence" showing our commitment to high-quality training solutions.

We also provide a training portfolio that can be used to document an employee’s training during the care certificate and for their continued workplace development, delegates also receive a tracking document that can be used by the care manager to evidence the completion of the competency-based units, which enable the care manager to ensure that all of the practical requirements have been met before issuing the care certificate.

The Care Certificate is a requirement for all staff beginning their career in the care sector, ideally, it should be completed before starting work and must be completed within twelve weeks from the commencement of employment.  This course is also suitable for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge.

The online course is available with a practical module locally to rehearse practical skills where required. We can also integrate classroom-based and online qualifications to expand knowledge and build training packages.  Where required, we offer many regulated qualifications to support your training in the care sector and these can be integrated with your care certificate training package.

Basic life support skills are covered in this course to learn the skills but you would have to complete a practical lesson to pass this module.  We can arrange this if you require nationally.

Care Certificate Recommendations

Health Education England, Skills for Care, and Skills for Health made a number of recommendations which were agreed by the Department of Health Governance Assurance Board:

  • The 15 standards should remain, subject to some amendments 
  • Individuals will need to complete all 15 standards to be awarded the Care Certificate
  • The Certificate should be prioritised by employers for “new staff, new to care"
  • 12 weeks will remain as the guidance timeframe for a full-time individual to complete the Care Certificate
  • The minimum level of quality assurance of the Care Certificate, and the certification itself will be the responsibility of employers
  • In addition to events and workshops, a suite of materials will be made freely available for employers to download and use to support them in implementing the Care Certificate.

We also off all 15 standards as single courses.

The Care Certificate replaces both the Common Induction Standards and the National Minimum Training Standards.  For more information on the Care Certificate, you can contact Skills for Care.
