Care Certificate Logo news jan15The latest versions of these free resources are now available on Health Education England, Skills for Health and Skills for Care websites. You can find the updated resources here.

The revisions to the documents (which come from sector feedback) are minor, with only the resources for two standards having significant changes.


  • Standards 11 & 12 have been amended to remove reference to the date on which the referenced guidance is published. The Standards now only refer to the ‘current guidance’. This change is also reflected in the Assessor framework and the self-assessment tool.
  • The workbook for Standard 9 now provides a wider resource for mental health issues in line with requests from mental health teams.
  • The workbook for Standard 12 has been updated to reflect the latest resuscitation guidance.

The Progress Log, Mapping and Sign Off sections of each Workbook is now available as a separate free download.

To further support these changes there have been amendments to the frequently asked questions and there is ongoing work on the PowerPoint presentation which supports the workbook.
