If you haven’t fully embedded the Care Certificate standards in to your organisation you need to move quickly – the grace period is over. care cert

The Care Certificate is a key component of the overall induction, which an employer must provide, in order to meet the fundamental standards set out by the Care Quality Commission.

ARC England has developed a distance learning pack for your new starters, ‘Getting Started with the Care Certificate’ and it is available NOW. The pack contains comprehensive learning materials and a workbook, which is mapped throughout to the required knowledge outcomes for each standard in the Certificate.

The workbook also contains a sign-off sheet at the end of each standard making assessment and progress easy to track and evidence, also highlighting what needs to be covered as an *’observation’.

The pack costs £49 for ARC members and £60 for non members. If you would like one of us within the ARC England Learning and Development team to assess the workbook for you, no problem – assessment of the workbook, including feedback, starts from £30 (for up to 2 hours of assessment time).

Looking for more support to implement the Care Certificate than that?

We also offer a Train the Trainer workshop – we can come to you and upskill your managers, provide you with all the resources to deliver the knowledge component, to train your new starters yourselves. Please contact us if you wish to know more!

If you would like to place an order or if you want to know more about either the learning pack or training available, please do not hesitate to contact us at contact.us@arcuk.org.uk or on 01246 555 043.

(*NB the observations will need to be completed by yourselves and you will sign off the full certificate as required.)
