The Care Certificate

Jointly developed by Skills for Care, Health Education England, and Skills for Health, as of April 2015, it is now integral for all healthcare professionals to meet the 15 Care Certificate standards.

Whilst incorporating and superseding the Common Induction Standards and National Minimum Training Standards, the Care Certificate goes further and not only develops on the areas previously covered by the aforementioned standards, but also introduces many new training standards to the professional. This provides staff with a good foundation to develop their knowledge and skills in health and social care.

Below you will find a full breakdown of the personalised Bluerock training course including the additional specialist training units we cover and information on each of the 15 Care Certificate standards.
