The Care Certificate went live on 1st April 2015 and sets standards for the induction for care workers. CQC will expect employers to demonstrate that new staff have, or are working towards, the skills set out in the Care Certificate, as the benchmark for staff induction.

The Care Certificate is a set of 15 standards that must be assessed in the workplace during a 12 week induction period for new staff. The employer must be satisfied that the assessor is competent to assess whether the worker meets the standards, and must be undertaken by someone who is occupationally competent.
