There is no expiry date for this certificate, however you may want to refresh the course periodically. The timescale for a refresh depends on the type of course that is being taken and the nature of your business. Ideally, the refresh regularity should be based on a thorough risk assessment of your business and tailored to the unique needs of your organisation and customers (if you are unsure how to complete a risk assessment, you can learn more by completing our Risk Assessment Awareness course).

If you are looking for a general rule for refresh training, every 12-18 months is good practice for the courses that Learn Q offer (we will also email you a reminder when you approach the recommended refresh date).

Please keep in mind the following exclusions:

  • In the case of an internal incident- if there has been an incident within your business where an employee, a customer or a client has been injured then this then means that it is important to refresh all colleagues with the relevant training to minimise the chance of it happening again. 
  • In the case of an external incident- if there has been an incident outside of your business, but within your industry then this could be a time to refresh relevant training. Of course, this will only be applicable if the incident is severe, and you think that it poses a risk to your business and those who work within it and those who are clients. At the very least, it is going to be worthwhile refreshing their Health and Safety training. 
  • If a process changes- if an internal process has changed, then it is going to be a good time to refresh any training that relates to this process. Particularly if you feel that it might impact what has been previously learnt.
  • If you bring in new equipment- if you introduce new equipment, you should provide training that is relevant to this change. Even if the change is slight; after all, prevention is always better than cure. 
  • If there has been a change in the environment- if you move premises or have some changes made to where you work, then you will need to think about some of the training. This includes COSHH and Health and Safety. 

This is an ‘entry level’ course, meaning there are no barriers for entry. You do not need any prior learning, qualifications or certificates to take this course and it is suitable for all.

While it is recommended that you have qualifications before pursuing a career in care, it is possible to work as a carer while learning on the role. However, you will be expected to obtain your care certificate which means that your role might be limited until you have completed the certificate. This is to ensure that you understand the fundamentals of care, what is expected and how to deliver the right level of care to those who need it.

You can either choose to undertake the mandatory training in your own time before applying for roles or you can undertake the training on the job. If you opt for the latter, then you will need to be paid for mandatory training as it will be considered a part of the role and will need to be completed during work time or even in your own time, for which you will also be paid.

Yes. Once you begin your role as a care worker, even if you have an NVQ you will still be required to do the care certificate. The care certificate will assess your skills, knowledge and behaviours, ensuring that you are able to provide the right level of care as part of the services you provide. Therefore, this will cover the likes of caring with privacy and dignity, awareness of mental health, safeguarding, communication and infection control, all of which are hugely important in the care sector.

While you do not need qualifications such as GCSE’s or A Levels to work in care, it is recommended that you have both Level 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care. These qualifications will ensure that you have the relevant skills and knowledge that ensure you are qualified to carry out the role and understand the specifics of what is needed to provide a high level of care for patients. 

The care certificate will contain mandatory training because it covers a variety of standards that enable individuals to carry out their role competently. Therefore, there are many different types of mandatory training included in the certificate such as safeguarding children, health and safety, 

Once you have obtained your care certificate, there is no requirement to undertake any further training in relation to the certificate. However, even though the certificate does not expire, it is recommended that you renew it every three years and so, the recommended renewal date can be found on your certificate. This will ensure that you refresh your knowledge and skills while keeping up to date with any changes in the sector.

If you are looking to pursue a career in the care sector then mandatory training is a legal requirement. This is because it will provide you with the knowledge and insight that is required to carry out the role competently and confidently. It will also ensure that you have the ability to handle patients with ease and understand their needs and risks while caring for them.

The care certificate is not difficult to complete but it does require practical application and theory that will take place within the workplace. This will require individuals to cover the 15 standards that form part of the certificate. It is required as part of the role and has to be obtained within 12 weeks of starting the role.

No, the care certificate is not free. This is a mandatory course that is required when undertaking a role in the care sector. It covers many different areas, ensuring individuals are aware of what is required of them and how to work safely in a care setting. However, the cost of the care certificate should be covered by the employer although the certificate has to be achieved within 12 weeks of taking on a role in the care sector.

There is no statutory requirement for care workers to make the care certificate mandatory. As a result, this means that it cannot be enforced by the Care Quality Commission. Despite this, the CQC does have the power to enforce specific regulations that require staff to undertake certain types of training. However, all new health care assistants will be expected to achieve a Care Certificate within 12 weeks of employment.

The care certificate is made up of 15 different standards that cover the many different elements of providing care to patients in the care sector. These 15 standards include:

  • Understand your role
  • Your personal development
  • Duty of care
  • Equality and diversity
  • Work in a person centred way              
  • Communication
  • Privacy and dignity
  • Fluids and nutrition
  • Awareness of mental health, dementia and learning disabilities
  • Safeguarding adults
  • Safeguarding children
  • Basic life support
  • Health and safety
  • Handling information
  • Infection prevention and control

The national care standards consist of five different principles or standards. These are there to ensure that the right level of care is provided to individuals. The standards are there for carers to follow and adhere to and they include:

  • Dignity and respect
  • Compassion
  • Be included
  • Responsive care
  • Support and wellbeing

There is no need for a qualified assessor to assess the care certificate. However, for anyone who is going to assess it, then they will need to ensure that they have the right level of competency for the standard that they are assessing. This means that they have the right experience and knowledge to understand that the individual understands that particular standard.

You can opt to undertake mandatory training during your own time and before you start your role as this will give you the skills and knowledge required. As a result, you would need to pay for the training yourself. However, when the training is carried out after you have started your role, your employer will have to cover the costs associated with training.

The care certificate is important as it proves that care professionals have the ability to work in a certain way when carrying out their role. It will also indicate that they have the right introductory skills as well as knowledge and behaviours that enable them to deliver a level of care that meets the needs of individuals as well as care providers.

If you take on a role in the care sector then you will be required to obtain a care certificate. This is a mandatory requirement and has been in place since the 1st April 2015.

The training that is available for support workers is wide and varied. However, if you are looking to pursue a career as a support worker / carer then there is some mandatory training that you will have to complete in order to carry out the role. This mandatory training will include health and safety awareness training as well fire safety training. Furthermore, you will also need to have moving and handling training.
