Updates made to Care Certificate e-learning programme

Posted on: January 8th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has updated the Care Certificate e-learning programme to add assessments to its knowledge-based sessions to help students and their assessors to review their learning on completion of the theory. The assessment pass mark is 80% and a certificate is available for learners to download on completion of each Standard.

If you are part way through completing the Care Certificate Standards, please be aware that the previous version of the programme will remain accessible within an archive folder until 31 March 2019; enabling users and local administrators to access historic certificates and report on learning history.

For those organisations currently using our AICC functionality to launch the sessions on their own Learning Management System, please note that the existing separate session links will remain active. New links to the updated programme content are now available.

The updates to the Care Certificate programme will be available via ESR by the end of January 2019.

Learners are invited to provide their feedback on the updated programme via an online questionnaire: https://healtheducationyh.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/care-certificate-e-learning-programme-survey. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete.

For more information about the Care Certificate programme, which covers Standards 1-15 and provides scenarios across a range of care settings, please see: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/care-certificate/.

If you have any questions about the changes to this programme, please contact HEE e-LfH.

Care Certificate e-Learning programme launches Scenario Sessions

Posted on: September 12th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has launched five scenario sessions to support the application of the Care Certificate Standards.

The scenarios take place in a range of health and social care settings and include:

  • Primary care
  • Acute care
  • Community/home care
  • End-of-life care
  • Mental health care

The sessions have been written by practitioners working within these specific care settings and are based on the typical duties that a Care Certificate student is asked to perform. The scenarios complement the existing Care Certificate e-Learning programme knowledge-based sessions and provide students with the opportunity to apply the standards within a setting similar to their own, as well as to see how the standards are applied in other care environments.

Kay Fawcett, Clinical Lead for the Care Certificate e-Learning programme, said: “These scenarios have been completed following requests to support more specific application of the Care Certificate for care settings.

“Basing the scenarios in recognisable care environments will support the application of the standards of the Care Certificate across a wide variety of settings”.

The scenarios are available now on the e-LfH Hub and as AICC links for Trusts, to access them visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/care-certificate/. They will be available via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) in September 2018.

Learners that complete the scenarios are invited to provide their feedback via an online questionnaire: https://healtheducationyh.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/care-certificate-e-learning-programme-scenarios. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete and the findings will be used to shape the scenarios to ensure they best meet learners’ needs.

Free Care Certificate e-learning programme for health and care workforce

Posted on: July 16th, 2018 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) is reminding the health and care workforce about the free e-learning programme that supports the theoretical standards of the Care Certificate.

The Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that the health and care workforce adhere to in their daily working life. The Care Certificate was developed to provide structured and consistent learning to ensure that care workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe, quality care and support.

The Care Certificate consists of 15 standards, all of which individuals need to complete in full before they can be awarded their certificate. The standards require both theoretical study and practical application within the student’s place of work.

The Care Certificate e-learning programme has been developed to further support the theoretical component of each standard of the Care Certificate, and is freely available to staff in the health and care sectors. It is based on the Care Certificate workbook, which was developed by Health Education England, Skills for Care and Skills for Health.

For more information about the Care Certificate visit: https://www.hee.nhs.uk/our-work/care-certificate and for details on how to register for the free Care Certificate e-learning programme visit: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/care-certificate/
