Care Certificate Assessor Workshop/ Assessment Day

July 23 @ 9:45 am - 4:00 pm

The Care Certificate is a set of standards that anyone delivering care to people in a health or social care setting are required to comply with. Many organisations deliver their own Care Certificate training as part of a routine induction process. Oxfordshire County Council and partner organisations want to help to improve the work-based assessment side of the Care Certificate, following an initial workshop with provider agencies. The training is a pilot for care homes and home care (for elderly people) and primary care.

Who is this day aimed at?

All staff with responsibilities for the delivery or assessment of the Care Certificate in order to:

  • Increase understanding of the Care Certificate standards;
  • Ensure knowledge and assessment meets the pilot standard within Oxfordshire;
  • Awareness of available resources;
  • Help breakdown the common barriers to assessing across the sector
  • Busting commonly held myths;
  • Working with like-minded colleagues to set an agreed minimum standard for assessing across all sectors;
  • Trial some practice assessment tools.

There are 50 places available, 25 at each of the two venues for those who are keen to be part of this pilot assessor training day, which has been designed and devised by stakeholders within the sector.

Two repeated sessions – attendees should only attend one. Refreshments and lunch are provided.

To book, please email looblackburn@nhs.net or call 07903 552363 by 19th July.

Places will be given on a first come, first served basis.
