Care Certificate

Care Certificate and Medication L2 Award – Get your staff trained for free*

For each standard there are elements the learner needs to know (Knowledge), and elements they need to demonstrate practically in the workplace (Competence/Practice). Only once they have completed both the knowledge and the practical elements can a manager sign the staff member off as competent to work unsupervised.

Help with the Competency assessment of new staff against the Care Certificate:

  • Once new workers have finished their training on the Knowledge elements of the Care Certificate, they need to have their competence assessed in the workplace by their employer. Employers can do this however they wish within the Guidance issued by Skills for Care. To help we have a proforma for a holistic assessment we share with our customers to make this as straightforward as possible for them.

Contact us to find out more, and remember that we can ‘mix and match’ elements from the above to meet your particular requirements.

*Please note the 4 days funded training covers all Level 2 Certificate in Understanding the Safe Use of Medicines (RQF), as well as all the Care Certificate Knowledge Standards except Basic Life Support,

**RQF stands for Regulated Qualifications Framework. It is the latest evolution in nationally accredited vocational training and is replaces the more familiar QCF (Qualification Credits Framework).
