Care Certificate for assessors resources launched

Hannah Denness, 26 April 2021
The Care Certificate

Following requests from the health and care sectors, Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has developed 2 new sessions to assist assessors in supporting individuals being assessed for the Care Certificate programme.

The Care Certificate is a set of standards developed for the health and social care support workforce, to provide a framework to ensure that all support workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to prepare them to deliver care in their workplace setting. The Care Certificate needs to be assessed through both theory and practice and the role of the assessor is fundamental to its achievement.

The 2 new sessions, and their associated support guide, are designed to support assessment in the workplace and will be useful for all staff that have responsibility for making decisions on whether a support worker in health or care has been able to apply the standards set out within the Care Certificate.

The resources are appropriate for those who are new to the role as a workplace assessor for the Care Certificate, and for those who would like to refresh and update their skills in Care Certificate assessment.

The 3 new resources are:

  1. New assessor support guide
  2. Session 1 – Assessment principles
  3. Session 2 – Assessing the Care Certificate
