  • CQ3 are pleased to be working in partnership with CareMatch

About CQ3

  • CQ3 Training work with care homes, domiciliary care providers, community care services, personal assistants, local authorities and the NHS to provide training solutions

  • We have provided training courses and funded Health and Social Care Diplomas to Personal Assistants

  • Our philosophy is about making a real difference to people’s lives

  • Our success is founded on our values and principles, and the research that we put into our products and services

  • For this project, we consulted with Skills for Care about how the Common Induction Standards could be adapted

What are the Common Induction Standards?

  • A set of 8 Standards developed by Skills for Care

  • Designed to be met within a 12 week period for people entering the health and social care sector

  • Designed to demonstrate high quality care provision

  • Mandatory requirement for care homes and domiciliary care services

  • Not a mandatory requirement for Personal Assistants but recommended

  • Links with the Health and Social Care Diploma

Why recommended for Personal Assistants?

  • The Care Quality Commission (CQC) recommend that an effective induction for care workers should be carried out to improve outcomes for the service user/employer

  • Provides underpinning knowledge in health and social care

  • Can be used as a platform for additional training and qualifications

  • Enables the Personal Assistant to become a professional in health and social care

  • Is a recognised Standard in the sector that employers and other professionals understand

  • Improves the quality of life for the service user/employer

Why have we added additional components

  • Dementia and end of life care are critical areas in health and social care, that all care workers should be aware of and have some basic knowledge in

  • The Common Induction Standards provide a great platform for introducing this knowledge as it is usually trained within the first 12 weeks of employment

  • Complements the National Dementia Strategy, National End of Life Care Strategy and core competencies

  • Provides development for specialist dementia and end of life care units on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)
