    Hi
    I have an interview with the NHS tomorrow for Maternity Support Workers; I am double checking what I need to take with me. On the document it mentioned “any relevant professional certificates” what does this include?? Is it talking about my GCSE Certificates?

    IF SO I’m in deep trouble, I do not have my certificates any more they got lost when we moved house 5 years ago, I know I am going to get slated for this but I guessed what I got for my GCSE'S which I believe where all C Grades, Now I do not know what to do. Should I phone them and tell them the situation or should I leave it? But if they require my GCSE's Certificates I have no idea what to do.

    Any help would be great full
    Many thanks to all,

    I doubt professional certificates means GCSE. GCSE would be rather an academic qualification. More so, if they want to see your GCSEs or A levels they usually say so expressly. In any case, it would be a good idea to request some GCSE certificate copies because they ask for them in some jobs. Good luck.

    Do you even have the provisional statements? Go for the interview and if they ask to see them explain your situation. You could ask them to phone the school you studied at to confirm your grades, if they really want proof.
    You should probably pay for a replacement certificate though, by contacting your exam board for future interviews.

    No i do not have any statements at all,, nothing. I do not know what happened to them and now im worried sick about it. I left school about 4 to 5 years ago so i do not know if the school will still have them on record.

    In the person specification it did not mention any specific GCSE requirements just basic level of education.
    So at the moment I am So confused.

    If you are so worried, ring them. I am pretty sure 'professional qualification' is not GCSE. Again, GCSE is an academic qualification and most positions advertised say expressly if they need proof of them.

    Whenever I am asked to take things like that I don't take my GCSE/A Level certificates. I think the question is more aimed at people who have professional qualifcations, like a nursing degree or an NVQ.
    If they want them, just explain the situation. It might be worth looking into getting copies of the certificates in case you need them in the future.
