A shared statement has been published by Health Education England, Skills for Health and Skills for Care in response to a number of claims being made by training providers in relation to the Care Certificate.
Several training providers, including e-learning providers, are making claims to encourage employers to commission their services and some appear to be selling materials that are freely available.
The shared statement clarifies the position regarding the Care Certificate, including the mandatory requirements, and makes it clear that no training provider has been licensed to award this.
The statement advises employers to exercise caution before they purchase any materials as the standards, guidance documents and workbooks for the Care Certificate are all available free of charge. The workbook and FAQs have been revised and will be published before the end of the year.
