Care Certificate Standard 1 - Understanding Your Role

Care Certificate Standard 1 - Understanding Your Role

Comprehensively covering Standard 1 of the Care Certificate - Understanding Your Role

Welcome to the suite of courses designed to help individuals demonstrate they have met all elements of the new Care Certificate Framework, developed in partnership by health Education England, Skills for Care, and Skills for Health.

These Standards replace the Common Induction Standards and National Minimum Training Standards (NMTS) and focus on the 15 areas designed to cover the key knowledge elements that help to ensure that the healthcare support worker "has the required values, behaviours, competences and skills to provide high quality, compassionate care".

Red Rock Training has released these Standards as a series of Modules to help individuals, employers and managers to better control the order in which each individual person's needs are met, an approach which also enables smaller pieces of work to be completed by candidates and signed off in turn by the relevant person within each organisation (once completed). Candidates can then confidently move on to the next Standard.

This programme deals with Standard 1 and covers The Role of the healthcare Support Worker and Adult Social Care Worker. The areas that will be covered in the course include:

  • Understanding your own role
  • Working in ways that have been agreed with your employer
  • Understanding working relationships in Health & social care
  • Working in partnership with others

Once you have completed all sections, passed the multiple choice exam at the end of the course and downloaded your certificate, in order to be confident in your ability to work unsupervised, you should also make sure the certificate and any associated assessment expectations have been signed off by an appropriate person deemed competent to do so.

There are a number of different certificates required to demonstrate you have completed all aspects of the Care Certificate Framework and each is uniquely referenced by Red Rock Training within this online system and can be tracked accordingly using the unique reference number on each certificate.
