Mandatory & Statutory Training Providers for Health and Social Care
Mandatory and Statutory Training Providers for Health and Social Care.
Mandatory and statutory training is no longer a “nice-to-have” in successful organisations. It has become a critical part of any company’s investment strategy if they want to continue growing long-term. Training promotes employee loyalty and retention, improve performance levels, and increases employee independence, among many other benefits.
When it comes to training, outsourcing to a specialist provider has become an increasingly popular choice for many organisations. It is often more cost-effective, provides more expertise, and allows organisations to focus on the business operations instead of facilitating training.

Mandatory and Statutory Training : Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Here at The Mandatory Training Group, we receive many enquiries about mandatory and statutory training. We have listed some of these frequently asked questions.
Click on the text below to see the answers to the Frequently Asked Questions about mandatory and statutory training.
Mandatory training is the training that an organisation determines to be essential for safe and efficient practice and to reduce organisational risks and comply with the policies, legislative and regulatory requirements.
In health and social care settings, mandatory training is sometimes defined as a compulsory requirement based upon the responsibility for medical, nursing and healthcare staff to work safely and effectively.
Statutory training is the training that is usually required by law or where a legislative body has instructed an organisation to provide training based on specific legislation. Examples of such legislation include the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
Statutory training helps to keep health and social care staff up to date with the latest legislation, regulations, guidance and best practice recommendations. Statutory training also ensures that employees have the skills and knowledge to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for themselves, their colleagues and patients/service users.
Examples of courses offered by mandatory and statutory training providers are:
Here at The Mandatory Training Group, many people get in touch with us enquiring about the difference between statutory and mandatory training. In practice, we have found that many health and social care providers often describe both types of training as 'essential training' or 'compulsory training', and sometimes 'statutory mandatory training' or simply 'mandatory training'.
So what is the difference between statutory and mandatory training? The majority of healthcare and social care organisations use the term 'mandatory training' as a 'catch-all' to cover both mandatory and statutory training.
Examples of statutory and mandatory training frameworks include the UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF), the Care Quality Commission inspection standards, NHS resolution risk management standards and NHS commitment to meet the criteria for better health.
Our UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) aligned mandatory and statutory training courses provide doctors, allied health professionals, nurses, nursing and care staff with interactive online training resources and end of course assessments. This enables health and social care staff to be compliant with their mandatory training requirements.
Statutory and mandatory training courses are essential because they enable health and social care workers to achieve the standards set by regulatory authorities and meet organisational obligations. Both statutory and mandatory training equips staff with the essential knowledge and skills to work safely and effectively.
Our statutory and mandatory training packages cover all the legislative and regulatory requirements for care workers to work safely and efficiently, as well as minimising litigation.
Yes, it is possible to get a job using online courses. Online courses are sometimes better than the traditional route and even better when both of them work parallel. In this way, we can cop up with different types of the field in the same and can expand our knowledge at a better extent.
NHS Trusts, private healthcare providers, care homes and other Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated organisations have a legal responsibility to provide various statutory and mandatory training courses and to ensure that their staff attend.
Statutory training is required to ensure that the organisation is meeting any legislative duties. On the other hand, mandatory training is an organisational requirement to limit risk and maintain a safe working practice.
Our mandatory and statutory training courses help health and social care employers and employees alike to fulfil their legislative duties. These comprehensive courses provide the essential knowledge and understanding as required by regulatory authorities.
