Is your Care Certificate e-learning GDPR compliant?

We’ve updated our Care Certificate e-learning to make it fully compliant with the GDPR, meaning we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to.

Developed by Highfield e-learning, it is one of the most comprehensive packages available anywhere for employees taking the Care Certificate, and is backed by Highfield’s expertise in developing the official Care Certificate Handbook.

The e-learning is designed to support the delivery of the knowledge elements of the Care Certificate, and can be fitted into existing workplace induction programmes. It covers all 15 standards included in the Care Certificate, with a 30-minute course (available individually) for each of the standards.

It’s also flexible so that each learner can complete the standards specific to their role, and is mapped to official health and social care qualifications so that prior learning can be recognised. And it’s fully customisable so that it meets the needs of individual organisations, and trackable so that learners’ progress can be monitored and verified.

Prices start at £25 per learner (based on 100 or more registrations).

Highfield joins Care Learning Coalition

Care Learning CoalitionHighfield has become part of the Care Learning Coalition (CLC), a new initiative by Skills for Care to raise the standards of training in the health and social care sector.

Developed as a network for learning and development providers who are committed to raising the quality of training, the CLC brings together Skills for Care’s endorsed providers and provides them with a certificate and logo to demonstrate their support.

The Endorsement Framework is a mark of quality that is given to the best learning and development in the adult social care sector. 

Highfield became an endorsed provider with Skills for Care for its innovative e-learning package to support learners and employers undertaking the Care Certificate, receiving the prestigious Approved e-Programme accolade being awarded Recognised e-Provider status.

The Care Certificate workbook was developed by Highfield in 2015 on behalf of the Partnership, made up of Health Education England, Skills for Care and Skills for Health. Highfield elearning’s resource was developed independently of the Partnership, but mirrors the content of the workbook and was created by the same team of health and social care sector experts.

E-learning for the Care Certificate receives official endorsement

innovative e-learning package An innovative e-learning package to support learners and employers undertaking the Care Certificate has received official endorsement from the sector’s lead, Skills for Care. 

Highfield elearning developed its course to support the introduction of the Care Certificate and the accompanying workbook. And now the e-learning course has been given the prestigious Approved e-Programme accolade from Skills for Care, while Highfield has been awarded Recognised e-Provider status.

Highfield is one of the UK’s largest educational bodies and was responsible for developing the official Care Certificate Workbook in 2015 on behalf of the Partnership, made up of Health Education England, Skills for Care and Skills for Health

Highfield’s innovative e-learning package was developed independently of the Partnership, but mirrors the content of the workbook and was created by the same team of health and social care sector experts.

This innovative e-learning package is flexible so that each learner can complete the standards that are specific to their role, and is mapped to official health and social care qualifications so that prior learning can be recognised. It is also fully customisable so that it meets the needs of individual organisations, and trackable so that learners’ progress can be monitored and verified.

Skills for Care’s Endorsement Framework programme establishes a set of strict criteria that organisations must meet to receive official recognition, and must be renewed on an annual basis to ensure that high standards are maintained.

Chris Sprenger, Highfield’s Managing Director, said, ‘We’re proud to be one of the first organisations to be recognised by Skills for Care’s Endorsement Framework for an e-learning course. It is a huge accolade, and points to the strength of our e-learning offer, the expertise – both technical and sectoral – behind it, and the recognised and acknowledged impact it can bring to employers looking for effective, efficient learning that delivers value for money’.

Claire Eley, Specialist Training Manager at CQM Learning Ltd, said, ‘CQM Learning Ltd (CQM) has introduced over 200 organisations to the Highfield Care Certificate e-learning.  Our clients have found the course to be highly effective and efficient, and particularly love the reporting functions available. The most frequently commented on features are the ease of use and the time it saves managers and supervisors from marking workbooks, meaning time can instead be used to observe staff competence while holistically reassessing knowledge across the units. Our clients keep coming back to us for more licences, which coupled with the Skills for Care endorsement, means it’s the only Care Certificate e-learning CQM Learning will consider using’.

Janet Glentworth, Vocational Centre Manager at Creative Support said, ‘Since Creative Support began using Highfield’s Care Certificate e-learning package, the uptake and completion of the certificate has increased by 300 percent and is still increasing. Likewise, we have reduced the number of days needed by classroom induction by 50 percent. The LMS is clear, easy-to-use and informative – from registering learners to awarding the certificate – saving time and resources for our admin team. With its ability to track learner progress and completions, and its easy-to-access information for inspections (such as CQC), learners find it easy to use and very accessible, making it excellent value for money.’

PRESS RELEASE: Official Care Certificate workbook developed by Highfield

Care Certificate WorkbookAn official workbook to support the launch of the Care Certificate this March has been developed by Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC) after it was commissioned by the Partnership of Health Education England, Skills for Care and Skills for Health responsible for implementing the initiative.

HABC, which is one of the UK’s leading awarding organisations, was awarded the project by the Partnership after a successful tender bid in November 2014. The workbook will support the introduction of the Care Certificate across the health and social care sectors, and will be available for free from Partnership websites.

The introduction of the Care Certificate is one of the biggest developments in health and social care training for many years. The workbook covers all 15 standards, and includes exercises to test knowledge and understanding, learner assessment logs to monitor progress and guidance for employers delivering the Care Certificate to their employees.

Apprenticeships at Tower Project - 10Oct13It was developed by a team of experts with knowledge and experience of the health and social care sectors, and reviewed by an independent panel of employers and educators, as well as senior staff from the Partnership.

Christian Sprenger, HABC Managing Director, said, ‘We’re honoured to have developed learning resources on behalf of the Partnership to ensure the successful introduction of the Care Certificate. Learners undertaking the Care Certificate will have access to free, high-quality materials in the form of a workbook to help them with their knowledge and understanding, and to ensure the key recommendations from The Cavendish Review are met’.

490732749_5Fazeela Hafejee, Project Manager at Skills for Care, said ‘The Care Certificate workbook is freely downloadable from Partnership websites including Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health. Employers will be able to download it – either as a whole or as separate standards – and use as needed so that their employees meet the requirements of the Care Certificate’.

A final draft of the workbook will be available to view at the Skills for Care Conference – sponsored by HABC – at Park Plaza, Victoria, London on 12 March 2015.
