The Care Certificate: Elearning for Healthcare Inductees

Our Care Certificate course is an ideal introduction to care work in the UK

Our Care Certificate online elearning course is the ideal starting point for mandatory training for carers, support workers & NHS staff.

The Care Certificate is a defined set of training standards intended to form an induction for people new to the health and social care industries.

It was jointly developed by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health.

The intention was to align health and social care training with nursing and healthcare, and for mandatory training to be transferrable between employers in care.

Ideal entry level training for the UK care industry

Recognised by UK health & social care employers

Convenient online training with certificates

Why Should I Use Online Training for the Care Certificate?

CareTuition courses enable learners to complete their online training away from your classroom, and employers & training providers will be able to track their progress on any device.

All training will be logged in one place and course leaders are free to download certificates for their records.

Our online course is assessed automatically which saves valuable time, and eliminates inconsistencies.

Learning resources are available for providers to teach and assess using paper-based workbooks for the Care Certificate. However, managers will need to demonstrate the meeting of over 100 learning outcomes. It is sometimes more cost effective therefore to use online learning for mandatory training.

Can Elearning for Health and Social Care Form a Complete Induction?

The Care Certificate is meant to teach the ways of working necessary to provide care safely and to the required standard. However, it does not teach all the practical skills required for care.

For example, it can only provide theoretical training on basic life support.

It therefore cannot provide an complete induction training programme without further learning – be wary of providers claiming otherwise!

It is however expected by the Care Quality Commission that induction training should follow Care Certificate standards. CQC inspectors will expect to see induction programmes which are based upon the Standards, and ideally evidence that the award is being delivered in full.

Can the Care Certificate Form Part of Further
Health and Social Care Training?

Yes – the Care Certificate can count towards further qualifications in healthcare. While the Care Certificate provides some scope for providers to deliver and assess it as they see fit, its outcomes can be mapped to recognised qualifications. These include QCF qualifications such as Level 2 Health & Social Care.
