Quality Care - everyone, everytime
 

Care Certificate

The Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the non-regulated workforce in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support. 

The Care Certificate is based on 15 standards, all of which candidates need to complete in full before they can be awarded their certificate. 


Assessors

The Assessor is the person responsible for making the decision on whether the Healthcare Support Worker or Adult Social Care Worker (HCSW/ASCW) has met the Standard set out in the Care Certificate.

In order to be an Assessor the person themselves must be competent in the standard they are assessing. For almost all assessors this will be by virtue of holding a qualification related to the role. However, this doesn't meant that in every case the same person is competent to assess every standard. For example it may be necessary to use a different assessor to assess Standard 12 – Basic Life Support to any of the other Standards.
