Core skills and values

You must be a certain type of person to work in care and health. You’ll need core skills such as English, basic numeracy and have an enthusiasm for problem-solving. However, it’s your values and attitude towards working with people who need care and support that matters most.

At Proud to Care, our values are compassion, competence, communication, courage, care and commitment. Have you got what it takes?

Read ‘What values do I need to work in social care?’ and do ‘A question of care online quiz’.

For support with training and inducting new staff at this time please feel free to access our Care Induction Framework (based in the Care Certificate), with all necessary links included to access free e-learning modules.
