Warning issued over false claims made about the Care Certificate

17 November 2015

Health Education England (HEE), Skills for Health and Skills for Care have issued to joint statement to warn people about false claims being made by training providers about the Care Certificate.

It has come to light that Training and e-learning providers have been cashing-in on the success of the Care Certificate by charging for materials that are freely available on the Health Education England (HEE), Skills for Health and Skills for Care websites.

Employers are being encouraged to “look carefully at the quality of the learning materials and assessment being used in any products being marketed to them, and to consider carefully whether the assessment would comply with the assessment requirements.”

The Care Certificate was launched in April 2015 to provide clear evidence to employers and individuals, that the health or social care worker in front of them has the skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.

The full statement is available to read in the related documents section.
