|Supporting People in their Own Homes can be used for the Common Induction Standards up until June 2011, unless you are starting the course now. This workbook can also be used for underpinning knowledge for frontline workers in adult social care. |
All newly appointed domiciliary care workers undergo a period of induction. This is set by the government and monitored by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI).This must be completed within the first 12 weeks of employment and it must be based on the Skills for Care Common Induction Standards (2005) and the General Social Care Council Code of Practice (2002).
The manual is divided into chapters based on The Skills for Care Common Induction Standards (2005) and comprises a series of simple learning activities and knowledge tests. The chapters are cross-referenced to the Level 2 NVQ in Health and Social Care.
The pack also includes a short guidelines for managers outlining how they can best support the induction process. An extended version of the guidance for managers is available on a separate CD-ROM.
