Understanding Your Role

Our Understanding Your Role Training course aims to provide awareness to help make sure employees know what is expected from them in their job role but also what is not included in your role. Job descriptions will give a good overview of your role but will often not list every task that is expected from you. 

The possible responsibilities that might be included in your job role are: providing care & support, working as part of a team, contributing towards activities or respecting confidentiality. As an employee, it is important to understand your companies values, aims and objectives. 

Standard 1 of the Care Certificate – Understanding your role – requires staff to:

  • Understand their own role
  • Work in ways that have been agreed between them and their employer
  • Understand working relationships in health & social care
  • Work in partnership with others
