HCA Academy and the Care Certificate
The HCA Academy is our induction programme for all new Healthcare Assistants/Healthcare Support Workers joining the nursing and midwifery workforce. This is to aid their integration and understanding of how a large acute hospital functions and gain an understanding of the fundamentals of care.
The Care Certificate workbook is introduced and support offered to aid completion to ensure our workforce has a firm understanding of the principles of care.
We have developed a QR code quick access document for the Care Certificate Standards, which you can access here.
