Course description

Care Certificate Programme

The Skills Network’s Care Certificate Programme is an innovative e-learning solution, which will help ensure all new and existing health and social care staff develop the knowledge and skills needed to meet the standards launched nationally in 2015.

This interactive, online course houses both competency and knowledge based requirements set by the CQC, allowing care organisations to easily organise, and reference staff training.

Carers from different sectors, including healthcare support workers and adult social care workers, will benefit from the knowledge, skills and confidence they develop as a result of completing the course.

Our e-learning course is available in a range of options:

Bronze Package

An innovative online course guiding learners through their Care Certificate with interactive features and engaging video content.

This package gives learners access to our online learning platform, EQUAL, to work through their knowledge based questions. All questions and work-based competencies are to be marked and referenced by the care provider.

Silver Package

This package includes our engaging online resources which cover the knowledge elements of the Care Certificate and are fully marked by TSN tutors, meaning care providers will only need to sign off the competency elements in order for learners to achieve their Care Certificate.

Gold Package

This package again presents all learning content within our online learning platform, EQUAL. Learners will be able to work their way through all knowledge based questions and these will be marked by The Skills Network tutors. Competency based questions will also be marked by The Skills Network.
