Who Cares? is a specialised test which assesses a person's capability to deal with generic care scenarios - showing how they approach the challenging and varying demands of a role in front-line care. The test was developed with a range of social care organisations specifically for the role of support worker. It gives recruiters a quick, but accurate indication of the candidates' values, attitudes and suitability for this demanding type of work.
