Care Certificate Research Evaluation
A comprehensive report is due to be published following a research evaluation, surveying over 400 care providers.
The Care Certificate induction standards were introduced in 2015. The National Institute for Health (NIHR) funded research to evaluate the implementation and impact of the programme. Having contributed to the exercise, we are still keen to hear about your experiences.
Around 60% of 400+ care providers surveyed viewed the Care Certificate as positive. What’s your take?
The introduction of the Care Certificate Induction standards introduced in 2015. It aimed to improve the quality and care delivered by health and social care workers, particularly those new to care. The standards were expected to address inconsistencies in training and workforce competencies. The standards are not mandatory but the Care Quality Commission (CQC) independent regulator for care quality, welcomed the standards and signposted care providers to the free resources produced the Health Education England (HEE) together with Skills for Health (SfH) and Skills for Care (SfH). The uptake of the induction standards training has been variable, but it is encouraging to learn from the evaluation that 60% of over 400 care providers surveyed found the impact of the Care Certificate standards positive. Many care providers did not participate in the survey. Having contributed to the research evaluation we would still like to know about your experience of the ‘not-so-new’ standards.
