How to assess:

Guidance for Team Leaders and other people involved in an Induction on how to support learning and assess competence. Team Leaders must read this information when starting to plan and support an Induction.


The Care Certificate has 15 Standards. We have put together information to guide staff through the national Care Certificate Standards, DCC organisational standards and workplace specific standards at the same time – this reduces duplication and helps staff to be ready for their role.

The Care Certificate is designed to be transferable across all health and social care services. Therefore the Skills for Care workbooks need to be completed.
