Congratulations are in order for more Encompass team members who have been successful in completing their Care Certificate. The Care Certificate is a set of standards that social care and health workers apply in their daily working life. It is the new minimum standards that should be covered as part of induction training of new care and support workers.
The Care Certificate was developed jointly by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health. It:
- applies across social care and health
- the units link in to other qualifications
- covers what is needed to be caring - giving workers a good basis from which they can develop their knowledge and skills.
Janet Matthews and Jonathan Walsh, Encompass Trustees presented the certificates to Hayley Mansfield, Emily Burden, Sarah Higgins, Shelley Jeans, Kelly Forry, Lorna Vassie and Charlotte Miles.
