Care Certificate Training

Premier Training Services have been providing CIS Training for some time now to our many customers within the Care Sector and are happy to continue providing to your training requirements as the New Care Certificate now replaces the Common Induction Standards with effect from April 2015.

The Care Certificate was a recommendation from the Cavendish review which found that the preparation of social care support workers and healthcare assistants for their roles within care settings was inconsistent. The Care Certificate is the first time an agreed set of standards that define the minimum expectations of what care should look like across social care and health has been developed. It has been developed in partnership by Skills for Care, Skills for Health and Health Education England.

The Care Certificate Standards

The 15 standards in the Care Certificate are:

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 disability
10. Safeguarding adults
11. Safeguarding Children
12. Basic Life Support
13. Health and Safety
14. Handling information
15. Infection prevention and control

PLEASE NOTE: When the Care Certificate is introduced it will be replacing both the Common Induction Standards and the National Minimum Training Standards. The Care Certificate is designed to replace and improve on the Social care Common Induction Standards and health's National Minimum Training Standards. There is an expectation that the Care Certificate will begin being completed by new starters in Social Care or Health from April 2015.
