Distance Learning for the Care Certificate

UTS can support you with the completion of the Care Certificate through distance learning to include the assessment of the workbook by a UTS competent, qualified assessor who will provide feedback to the learner and their manager.

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.

Care Act

The Care Act 2014, together with a range of regulations and statutory guidance, is the base upon which social care will develop over the next few decades. It enshrines the new statutory principle of individual wellbeing, the driving force behind the Act, and makes it the responsibility of local authorities to promote wellbeing when carrying out any of their care and support functions.

Care Certificate

The Care Certificate is an induction programme that will provide clear evidence to employers, patients and people who receive care and support, that the health or social care worker who is supporting them has been assessed against a specific set of standards and has demonstrated they have the skills, knowledge and behaviours to ensure that they provide compassionate and high quality care and support.
