Care Home Staff

Surrey Training Hub are committed to supporting Social Care services and Care Homes to access education and training opportunities to help them in their vital role of caring for people within their own homes.

Developed following the review of health and social care support workers by Camilla Cavendish (2013), the Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the unregistered workforce in mind, the Care Certificate was developed to provide structured and consistent learning to ensure that care workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe, quality care and support.

You can access eLearning for Health’s online programme here.

The Care Certificate e-learning programme supports those workers who are studying elements of the Care Certificate in both health and social care. It has been designed to support the theoretical component of their learning and provide a focus for discussion with the student’s mentor and assessor.

Apprenticeships provide a great way to develop a range of staff including Health Care Support Workers, Team Leaders, Care Home Managers

There are funds available to support Practices and Care Homes to access this work based learning route, and our partners across Surrey Heartlands are committed to support through transferring levy where appropriate- see Apprenticeship Section and HCA section for more info
