Care Certificate: Programme Overview
Our Care Certificate programme is comprised of 15 individual courses designed to meet each of the certificates essential standards. It is intended for Healthcare Support Workers (HCSW) and Adult Social Care Workers (ASCW), including Care Support Workers, Health Care Assistants, Assistant Practitioners, and those providing support to clinical roles who have direct contact with patients.
The Care Certificate is a key component of the overall induction that employers must provide, legally and in order to meet the essential standards set out by the Care Quality Commission.
The employer issues the actual Care Certificate itself based upon being able to prove that the requirements of the Care Certificate have been properly achieved. Our training assists carers in obtaining the level of competence necessary.

How are the courses assessed?
Assessment is made via a multiple choice knowledge test presented at the end of the course. If this course is failed, the test can be retaken two hours later – perfect time for a bit of revision!
*Admin users can determine both the pass grade, as well as the total number of attempts permitted.
When do I get my certificates?
A digital certificate will be available for download from the portal upon successful completion of the knowledge test.
*Admin users can determine if this feature is made available to individual learners.
How long do I have to complete the courses?
Once a course is allocated to an individual, 1 licence is used, and the learner has 12 months to complete said course. An email is sent if the course has not been completed within 11 months.
*Unallocated licences have no expiry date. If for example you ordered 1000 licences, and allocated 600 courses in year 1, you would have 400 licenses left to allocate in year 2.
