Sheila Scott OBE has now retired and therefore is no longer available to answer your social care questions. However, you might still find the answer you’ve been searching for down below.
Does someone with an NVQ 2 still need to do the Care Certificate?
I would like an answer to the following question please.
Q. If I employ someone with care experience and an NVQ 2 in health and social care , do they still need to complete the care certificate?
The answer to your question is no.
What you need to do though is undertake an induction for the person introducing the person to your home and covering areas such as Fire Safety, Policies and Procedures etc.
For reassurance there is also a Skills for Care Certificate self assessment form and I know that many employers are using this to identify any possible gaps in an individual’s knowledge that the person might like to have further training in.
You can find the self assessment form on the Skills for Care website: http://www.skillsforcare.org.uk/Documents/Learning-and-development/Care-Certificate/The-Care-Certificate-Self-Assessment-Tool.pdf
With best wishes.
