It is the responsibility of employers in health and social care sector to deliver the Care Certificate as part of their staff induction programme.
This Care Certificate e-learning course is the ideal resource to deliver the knowledge required in order to achieve the full Care Certificate.
Anyone starting work in the health or social care sector should complete the certificate including health care assistants, assistant practitioners, care support workers, adult social care workers providing direct care in residential and nursing homes and hospices; and home care workers.
This Care Certificate e-Learning Course is made up of the 15 standards which make up the complete Care Certificate. There is a 30-60 minute course for each of the standards which tests employees’ knowledge and understanding.
The standards covered are:
- Understand your role
- Your personal development
- Duty of care
- Equality and diversity
- Work in a person centred way
- Privacy and dignity
- Fluids and nutrition
- Mental health, dementia and learning disability
- Safeguarding adults
- Safeguarding children
- Basic life support

This e-learning programme is flexible so that each learner can complete the standards that are specific to their role. It is also mapped to units on the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) relating to health and social care qualifications, meaning learners can use the standards they have completed as recognised prior learning. Upon completion of the course learners will meet the knowledge requirement of the care certificate. Once the competence elements have been observed in the workplace the care certificate can then be awarded by the employer.
