What is the care certificate standard 1 – understanding your role?
Care certificate standard 1 relates to “understanding your role”. It will be almost impossible for a job description to list every task you will do but it should largely reflect your role. For health and social care support workers, the kinds of duties that might be in your job description are:
- Providing care and support, working in a person-centred way, communicating well, building relationships and promoting equality and diversity
- Working as part of a team, being a supportive team member and developing your skills to improve your work
- Contributing to activities in a safe way, keeping and filing clear records, keeping to regulations, following the agreed way of working
- Respecting confidentiality by not discussing any personal information on individuals or staff with unauthorised people, and storing records securely.
Why is this care certificate standard 1 course important?
There are many regulations that affect your role in health and social care. Regulations are rules that come from legislation or laws. The legislation establishes the general ‘laws of the land’. Regulations provide specific ways in which those laws are interpreted and applied.
The skills and knowledge you need to carry out your role competently and the ways in which you should work are set out nationally. You can find these in:
- The Care Certificate is shared health and social care training. It is expected that new healthcare support workers and adult social care workers will complete the 15 standards before they work without supervision in any workplace.
- The Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England. This has the moral and ethical standards expected of all health and social care workers.
