Care Certificate Training Course – Skills for Care Aligned Care Courses

Care Certificate Training Course

The Mandatory Training Group is a leading provider of the ‘Care Certificate’ training course aligned to Skills for Care’s learning outcomes.

What is the Care Certificate?

The Care Certificate was developed following recommendations from the Cavendish Report 2013. The Care Certificate was introduced to:

  • Build on and replace the Common Induction Standards (CIS) and National Minimum Training Standards (NMTS)
  • Set out specific learning outcomes, competences and standards that will ensure caring and compassionate quality of care.

Who is the Care Certificate training course for?

The Care Certificate training course for all health and social care workers, healthcare assistants and social care support workers. It is particularly important for staff:

  • Who are new to the workplace or new to care (to be completed within the first 12 weeks)
  • Or existing health and social care support staff requiring refresher training

Why is Care Certificate training required?

Following the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust and other scandals, the Care Certificate delivers public confidence in the provision of healthcare and social care services and sets out a benchmark to which standards can be assessed.
