Managers may want to use this Self Assessment Tool prior to a new starter commencing the Induction at Creative Support, if they have previous experience in health and social care. It is important that employees are honest in their current knowledge and skills against each of the standards as they will discuss the results with their managers to see how they can refresh or develop new knowledge and skills in different areas.
