Severn Valley Training and Medical

For all your medical cover, first aid, health and social care training needs

The Care Certificate is the general name for the agreed training standards people working in various healthcare environments need to meet before they can safely work unsupervised. It is applicable to people who are new to healthcare and those changing roles or employers. It is designed to enable healthcare workers to demonstrate their understanding of how to provide high quality care and support.

Our Care Certificate Suite has been created against the new mandatory Skills for Care, Skills for Health and Department of Health standards for all healthcare practitioners and replaces the Common Induction Standards from April 2015

The 15 Care Certificate Standards:

  • Understanding your role
  • Your personal development

  • Privacy and dignity
  • Fluids and nutrition
  • Dementia and cognitive issues
  • Safeguarding adults
  • Safeguarding children
  • Basic life support
  • Health and safety
  • Handling information
  • Infection prevention and control

Once complete, the Certificate issued will need to be signed off to confirm completion.
