Common Induction
Standards Self Study Package

The Standards
From June 2010 there are now eight standards, but they will take the same time to complete and the core elements are still retained.

Guidance on the Common Induction Standards
The Common Induction Standards are a requirement and have been designed to provide a structured start for all new care workers in the first 12 weeks of employment. This is to ensure that they are safe to work while unsupervised when having the responsibility for the people they support. Managers have a duty to ensure new staff knows enough to meet the required outcomes in each knowledge area.

The Standards are mapped to the General Social Care Council (GSCC) code of practice and if carried out in depth can provides evidence of underpinning knowledge towards the Health and Social Care Diploma at level 2 or level 3 (they are mapped to the mandatory units of the new Diploma).

Skills for Care states that the effective implementation of the Common Induction Standards are a significant step towards the delivery of high quality care and support. This resource will enables care workers to demonstrate this. It provides recognition for their work, and prepares them for entry on to future training and qualifications.
