Local Approved Awarders 

Whilst the Care Certificate is the national minimum standard of competence, it is sometimes difficult for an employer to know whether they should recognise a care certificate issued elsewhere, as there is no common standard or measure applied to those who issue the award. 

South Yorkshire Region Education and Careers (SYREC) aims to provide a degree of assurance across the health and social care sector by maintaining a list of approved awarders. Those appearing on the list are able to demonstrate that they support staff to develop in a structured manner.
