Care Certificate

The Care CertificateFrom April 2015, new health and social care workers should be inducted according to the Care Certificate framework. This replaces the Common Induction Standards and National Minimum Training Standards.

Mulberry House have a wide range of training that satisfies the requirements of the Care Certificate. Furthermore, our training covers, at the same time, important aspects of further vocational training. For example, as you undertake induction you are automatically paving the way with proof of prior learning towards QCF (which replaced NVQ). Two birds, one stone!

You save time and money, focus on the people you support and from a properly accredited training provider. What could be better?

There are 15 standards within the Care Certificate, which cover a wide range of subjects and topics. We recommend that a new full time employee should complete the Care Certificate within 12 weeks of starting their new role. Skills for Care suggest that experience from pilot sites demonstrates this is feasible for new full time staff. 

The employer issues the actual Care Certificate itself based upon being able to prove that the requirements of the Care Certificate have been properly achieved. Mulberry House training assists you to do this. The employer's self certification of the Care Certificate must be incorporated into the overall system of Quality Assurance under the oversight of their inspection authority.

We have developed a full range of Care Certificate Standards specific DVD bundles which you can view on our Special Offers page. This includes our Complete Induction Special - 38 DVDs in one amazing Care Certificate focussed package at an unbeatable price!
