Learners will receive a workbook and a reading resource for each of the 15 standards within the care certificate. These will typically be sent out to them by e-mail weekly over a 12-week period, with some weeks having 2 standards to work on.
The workbooks are to be returned to us weekly for assessment and feedback will be provided to the learner and the manager on the learners’ progression.
Prior to the programme commencing, all learners will receive a welcome pack to the distance learning programme and timescales for the return of their work.
The manager, or appointed assessor, will then be required to carry out an observation of practice in the workplace and carry out a discussion with the new member of staff. This will need to be assessed by the manager or appointed assessor and once the Care Certificate is fully complete, the registered manager is to sign off the full portfolio and claim the certificate from the Skills for Care website.
We are also able to discuss options for UTS carrying out the observation of practice and the discussion with a UTS competent, qualified assessor who will write up all feedback and provide this to the learner and their manager.
