The Care certificate:
The intent is to establish agreed organisational standards of assessment and sign off of the competencies that are recognised by all and that this should also include the development of a standardised training package for assessors. The benefits of standardising the approach support the principle of ‘pass porting’ the knowledge and skills to other CaSS roles within the South Yorkshire Region and thereby creating a clearer career pathway for health and social care.
New supportive Care Certificate resources
Skills for Care have developed additional resources which help to contextualise areas of the Care Certificate to different specialism areas which include:
- Learning Disability.
- Mental Health.
- Lone Working.
After some minor revisions these resources are now back on the website and ready to be shared with the sector.
