|The Care Certificate covers the learning outcomes, competencies and standards of behaviour that must be expected of support workers in the health and social care sectors. It aims to make sure that you are caring, compassionate and provide quality care in your work.
As from April 2015 all new health care support workers (nursing and AHP) must complete the care certificate in their first 12 weeks of employment.
All new starters must complete Trust induction, mandatory training, the Trust's Care Certificate workbook and attend a Compassionate Care Worker workshop.
The workbook is available here:
|Target Staff Group|
|Healthcare assistants, assistant practitioners, care support workers or roles supporting clinicians where there is direct contact with patients.|
|Workbook and compassionate care worker workshop|
|Once only - on appointment|
|Self-based learning and a full day workshop|
|How to Book|
|Staff requiring the care certificate will be given details of this on appointment. If you have any questions please contact the Learning & Development Team.
You can book your place on a workshop through ESR. Search for compassionate.
