Care Certificate Training For Assessors

The Care Certificate has been developed jointly by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health to demonstrate that health and social care workers are knowledgeable, safe and able to provide compassionate, high-quality care to vulnerable people.

Our Skills for Care endorsed Care Certificate training comprises a series of 15 short courses designed to provide you with complete working knowledge and understanding of the Care Certificate’s standards.

It’s the assessor’s job to observe, listen, witness and check each learner’s evidence to ensure that they are able to put their skills into practice every day. This course gives you the knowledge to plan, undertake and record your own assessment decisions, within the framework of the Care Certificate.

Assessor training also gives employers confidence that their assessors are applying the Care Certificate in a standardised way. This ensures that their training is relevant and supports good practice.

You will automatically get a course certificate on course completion – with your name, the CPD hours you’ve earned, the date and learning objectives.

Are you looking to complete the Care Certificate yourself? A Care Certificate – Digital learning suite companion course is available which contains the knowledge and information to help pass the Care Certificate and a Care Certificate – Digital workbook suite companion course is available which contains digitised versions of workbooks in the Care Certificate.


Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have a full knowledge of:

  • The purpose of the Care Certificate and its relevance to your organisation
  • The assessment process, from planning and observing evidence to recording and giving feedback
  • Selecting and applying assessment methods appropriate to each of the standards that you are competent to assess and to the individual learner being assessed
