Camilla Cavendish, following the Francis Inquiry, was asked by the Secretary of State to review and make recommendations on the recruitment, learning and development, management and support of healthcare assistants and social care support workers.
The report, published in July 2013, found that the preparation of healthcare assistants and social care support workers for their roles within care settings was inconsistent. One of the recommendations was the development of the Care Certificate
It is planned that the Care Certificate will be introduced in March 2015, it will replace the National Minimum Training Standards and Skills for Care Common Induction Standards.
The official launch is due in March 2015. Employers will start using the Care Certificate as of April 2015.
Peform2Excel can assist you with this transition, all training is mapped to the new Care Certificate outcomes, and supervision sheets are created fill the gaps and cover skills that require observation.
