The Care Certificate shows the minimum standards that should be covered as part of induction training for people new to health and care. Your employer will also make sure you are kept up to date with the latest legislation and best practice relevant to your role.
To find out more about the Care Certificate, visit the Skills for Care website.
You may choose to do additional formal qualifications depending on your area of work or chosen career path. Your employer will often work with a training provider to ensure you are learning the right skills and working towards the right qualifications.
If you already have qualifications in health and social care and have some experience already, there are even more opportunities for you to progress in your career.
