Care Certificate

The Care Certificate offers foundation training for healthcare staff who do not have a formal qualification such as a RQF, NVQ or QCF Diploma. This is a nationally recognised certificate which can lead onto further qualifications such as the Level 2 (RQF) Diploma in Care.

The Care Certificate provides health and social care workers with the foundation skills, knowledge and behaviours required to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.

Quick Facts
  • The Certificate takes approximately 12 weeks to complete.
  • You will be required to complete both theoretical and practical elements of the course.

Please note: To comply with Skills for Health regulations, only your employer can issue you with your final Care Certificate. Therefore, anyone can do their theory with us, but Care Academy can only issue the final Care Certificate to staff of LV Care Group. You should be wary of any training provider which is not part of your organisation who claims to be able to award your Care Certificate.
