The Care Certificate is a set of standards that social care and health workers stick to in their daily working life.

It is the new minimum standards that should be covered as part of induction training of new care workers. Our care certificate course is fully accredited by TQUK and is equivalent to the Level 2 qualification in Health and Social Care.

The course applies across social care and health links to National Occupational Standards and units in qualifications covers what is needed to be caring – giving workers a good basis from which they can develop their knowledge and skills.


Level 2 Award


The course is fully online and is designed for care administrators or care workers who are working full time and don’t have the time to go back to college. It gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same induction – learning the same skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.

The Care Certificate is the start of the career journey and is only one element of the training and education that will make them ready to practice within their specific sector.

Although the Care Certificate is designed for new staff, it also offers opportunities for existing staff to refresh or improve their knowledge.

For CQC regulated providers, the Care Certificate is expected of care workers joining health and social care since April 2015. The CQC Inspector Briefing highlights how they look for evidence in their inspections.

The standards:

  1. Understand your role
  2. Your personal development
  3. Duty of care
  4. Equality and diversity
  5. Work in a person centred way
  6. Communication
  7. Privacy and dignity
  8. Fluids and nutrition
  9. Awareness of mental health, dementia and learning disabilities
  10. Safeguarding adults
  11. Safeguarding children
  12. Basic life support
  13. Health and safety
  14. Handling information
  15. Infection prevention and control

Upon completion you will receive an accredited certificate from TQUK and the units achieved can be used to get exemption from full QCF courses (NVQs)

If you are working, your Care Manager or Supervisor can sign off your competence using the observation forms we provide.
