Course aim:

Course description:
Understanding the key features of good and outstanding services is important to anyone who is considering a job role within the Care sector. This ensures that staff are equipped with the right knowledge, values and tools to enable them to deliver high-quality care. This course will give you a brief overview of the 15 Care standards that are covered in the Care Certificate (an identified set of standards that health and care professionals adhere to in their daily working life, recognised by the Quality Care Commission). Get ahead in your applications, interviews and new role by understanding what is expected when employed within adult social care.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Explain the importance of privacy and dignity in a care setting.
2. Explain the roles and responsibilities that are key when considering a job role within the Care sector
3. Discuss how to safeguard yourself and others within a job role within the Care sector
5. Define person-centred care and explain its value.
