The Cavendish Care Certificate launched in March 2015.
Ask your staff to support your establishment’s development and give both themselves and their colleagues the recognition to undertake the new induction requirements. Anyone assessing the Care Certificate should be assessing ‘in line with or to an equivalent of’ the National Occupational Standards, as a minimum.
Way Ahead Care was selected as one of the pilot sites and therefore Step Ahead Training delivered the pilot to the Way Ahead operational teams. The certificate requires that new staff have their competency assessed during their work practice before they are able to work unsupervised. This requires staff who work support new staff to be confident in assessing and giving feedback on their competence decisions. Our staff told us they would like to have this area of development recognised, so we are offering them this unit in response. You are welcome to join us with this Level 3 Unit in Assessing Competence In the Work Environment.
