Care Certificate Learner Assessment Toolkit

Care Certificate learner assessment toolkitThe Care Certificate learner assessment toolkit provides a cost-effective solution to develop the skills of Care Certificate assessors.

Enabling assessors to effectively deliver the learning required for the Care Certificate and to assess effectively against the learning outcomes, the toolkit contains the following useful resources for 13 of the 15 Care Certificate standards:*

  • Knowledge Assessment Booklet - Helps you to ask your staff the right questions to be able to assess their understanding against the knowledge outcomes of each standard
  • Witness Testimony Template - Provides assessors or expert witnesses with a template to evaluate an individual's performance against the competence outcomes of each standard
  • Evidence Record Sheet - Provides employers, learners and assessors with an auditable tracking document and record of achievement. This will help learners and assessors to be able to identify any gaps and plan future learning and assessment opportunities
  • Example Activity - Each standard includes an illustration of the type of activity that could be used as part of a development programme

*The Care Certificate learner assessment toolkit covers 13 of the 15 Care Certificate standards - the two exceptions being 'Safeguarding children' and 'Basic life support'. Witness statements are not included for the 'Awareness of mental health, learning disability and dementia' standard as these are not a requirement of the standard.
