ARC England: Getting Started with the Care Certificate Distance Learning Pack

The Care Certificate is a key component of the overall induction, which an employer must provide, in order to meet the fundamental standards set out by the Care Quality Commission.

ARC England has developed a distance learning pack for your new starters, ‘Getting Started with the Care Certificate’ and it is available NOW. The pack contains comprehensive learning materials and a workbook, which is mapped throughout to the required knowledge outcomes for each standard in the Certificate.

*The workbook also contains a sign-off sheet at the end of each standard making assessment and progress easy to track and evidence, also highlighting what needs to be covered as an ’observation’.


  • £49 ARC members
  • £60 non ARC-members

If you would like one of us within the ARC England Learning and Development team to assess the workbook for you, no problem – assessment of the workbook, including feedback, starts from £30 (for up to 2 hours of assessment time).

Looking for more support to implement the Care Certificate than that?

We also offer Care Certificate Assessor’s Workshops to up-skill your managers ensure they are confident about observations and assessing in relation to the Care Certificate and its sign-off.

The one-day Care Certificate Assessor’s Workshop includes:

  • The role of the ‘assessor’ and the assessment process
  • The 15 standards – which sections require observation
  • Planning observation and assessment in the workplace
  • Assessment methods and making assessment decisions
  • Giving effective feedback
  • Recording and standardisation

Please contact us for more details.

If you would like to place an order or if you want to know more about either the learning pack or training available, please do not hesitate to contact us at or on 01246 555 043.

(*NB the observations will need to be completed by yourselves and you will sign off the full certificate as required.)
