CSTF aligned (all in one day) Aims

Skills for Health and Health Education England are working in collaboration on a programme of work to ensure the sustainability of a robust Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) with agreed requirements for learning outcomes, training standards and frequency of refresher training for NHS Trusts in England. The aim is to ensure CSTF alignment which is assured and related data which transfers efficiently, safely and accurately between employer organisations.

CSTF aligned (all in one day) Background

The Department of Health and Social Care mandate to Health Education England: April 2019 to March 2020 states the requirement to ‘further develop the core skills training framework to reflect the future service needs to the NHS’. Additionally, NHS England and NHS Improvement has committed in its Long-Term Plan to enable “staff to more easily move from one NHS Employer to another”. This aim was reinforced in the NHS People Plan for 2020/2021 and with the release of the NHS England and NHS Improvement Enabling Staff Movement Toolkit.

A key commitment is to reduce the unnecessary repetition of statutory and mandatory training and ensure data is accepted and trusted by all NHS providers.

Alignment to the CSTF is a key component of the NHS England and NHS Improvement programme to enable staff movement.

Revalidation for doctors, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals

Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Revalidation

Read our guidance for revalidation during the COVID-19 pandemic (Updated in September 2021).

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – update on revalidation for doctors
Published 25-10-2021

As our health services recover from the pandemic, we understand the pressures the profession remains under. We are continuing to support doctors to prepare for revalidation. There are options available for doctors who are not ready to revalidate by their scheduled date.

We’ve answered the main questions doctors have about their revalidation below. But if you have any other queries, please contact our Revalidation team on +44(0)161 923 6602 or email revalidation-support@gmc-uk.org.

GMC revalidation for doctors

Every licensed doctor who practises medicine must revalidate. Revalidation supports you to develop your practice, drives improvements in clinical governance and gives your patients confidence that you're up to date. This page provides step by step guidance and resources to support doctors in revalidation.


NMC revalidation for registered nurses and midwives

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) introduced 'Revalidation' in April 2016. One of the requirements is for nurses to show evidence of 35 hours of Continual Professional Development (CPD) over a 3-year period.

Our revalidation materials have moved

We've moved our guidance, documents and templates for revalidation to this dedicated area of our website.

The guidance has not changed and the process is the same, so you can continue to revalidate as normal.

How to revalidate during Covid-19

We've put some measures in place to support you to meet your revalidation requirements during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Visit our Covid-19: Revalidation page for information including details of revalidation deadline extensions.

The Health and Safety Groups Mandatory training contributes to your participatory CPD hours and certificates can be submitted as CPD evidence for Revalidation.

CSTF aligned (all in one day) Statutory training

This type of training is usually required by law or where a statutory body has instructed an organisation to provide training on the basis of specific legislation (i.e. the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999). Employers often describe this as ‘essential’ or ‘compulsory’ training and it ensures staff have the knowledge to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for themselves and their colleagues.

Staff shortages or other issues related to unsustainable pressures at work may affect your ability to undertake training. If this impacts on your progression at work or your pay, please see our unsustainable pressures for further guidance and contact us.

What this can include

In the NHS, all new employees are required to undertake core health and safety awareness and training. This usually includes:

awareness of the local health and safety policy
awareness of the control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH)
when and how to report injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences (RIDDOR)
fire safety awareness training
manual handling training
basic risk assessment training
annual updates in essential areas of fire safety and manual handling.
Starting a new job
When you start a new job you attend an induction programme, usually within the first month of starting work. During your first year you are usually required to complete the statutory and mandatory training sessions that were not covered in your induction. Attendance at statutory and mandatory training usually forms part of your terms and conditions.

Read your contract and local policies so you know what to expect.

CSTF aligned (all in one day) Mandatory training

Mandatory training is compulsory training that is determined essential by an organisation for the safe and efficient delivery of services. This type of training is designed to reduce organisational risks and comply with local or national policies and government guidelines. Some organisations use the terms essential or compulsory training as a ‘catch all’ to cover both mandatory and statutory training.

CSTF aligned (all in one day)

Mandatory training might include:

blood transfusion processes
child protection
clinical record keeping
complaints handling
conflict resolution (managing violence and aggression)
display and screen equipment
dementia awareness
equality awareness and eliminating bullying and harassment
incident reporting
hand hygiene
hazardous substances
infection prevention and control
information governance
mental capacity and safeguarding adults
medicines handling and management
medical devices
patient slips, trips and falls
personal protective equipment
venous thromboembolism
raising concerns and whistleblowing
violence against women, domestic abuse & sexual violence.
Attending mandatory training
We believe mandatory training should be paid for by the employer and undertaken during work time. Your employer may require you to attend training or updates on your off duty - you should, however, be given the equivalent time off to compensate. If you work regular night shifts your employer should take this into account to ensure you can attend any regular training updates.

Any work related training is counted as 'working time' under the Working Time Regulations 1998 and as such count as work when weekly hours are being calculated.

Read more on working time and breaks.

CSTF aligned (all in one day) Training and updates

Mandatory training usually requires attending annual updates, dependent on the role and organisational requirements.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) does not set specific requirements stating how often mandatory training must be undertaken or completed. However, the NMC does require that registrants remain trained and competent. Your employer is free to set their own protocols and policies on training which all staff are contractually obliged to follow.

Employer obligations

There are many frameworks under which employers should be delivering mandatory training. The NHS for example is required to meet the standards for better health, NHS Resolution risk management standards and the Care Quality Commission inspection criteria. Frameworks will vary depending on:

the risks encountered in the working environment
the needs of the workforce
insurers' standards
governance and legal frameworks in place
country-specific requirements
equality and diversity.

Equality and diversity considerations

The Equality Act 2010 places a responsibility on employers to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation, and promote equal opportunities. This means employers should consider those protected under the Act when designing and delivering statutory and mandatory training. The employer should consider what adjustments can be made for staff with a disability. This this could be to ensure the times and locations and delivery of the training is suitable and accessible. The employer should remove any physical barriers, or provide extra equipment or aids where required.

The Equality Act 2010 places a responsibility on employers to ensure any training policy and practice does not disadvantage or negatively impact protected groups. For example: arranging mandatory training sessions/updates only on certain days of the week which might prevent employees with a religious belief or faith from attending.

If you share a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010 and are experiencing discrimination please contact us for advice and to discuss local support arrangements.

For more information please see the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) publication, Your rights to equality at work: training, development, promotion and transfer (EHRC, 2011).

If you are based in Northern Ireland, see Equality Commission Northern Ireland.

Essential training for agency and bank workers

Your contract with the temporary work agency should outline your right to access essential/ mandatory training to ensure you work in a safe manner. Common training areas covered should include:

data protection
health and safety at work
control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH)
fire safety awareness
infection control
manual handling
lone working
safeguarding vulnerable adults
safeguarding children.
Agency and bank workers do not have the statutory right to request time off under the government's time to train initiative or paid time off to study.

Other training for agency and bank workers

Generally, agency and bank nurses should receive mandatory training, but usually need to self-fund any further career development. NHS Professionals (bank only flexible workers) can access the majority of their training courses online. Please see the 'Our Members' section.

We can provide careers advice to help with your development.

We could also be running local study days, workshops, short courses and seminars in your area. Please go to the RCN events and conferences page for further information.

Future plans
The current emphasis is on an in-depth review of the CSTF to ensure its continued relevance and currency and the development of a more rigorous process of quality assurance to ensure that CSTF alignment by NHS Trusts is verified and trusted.

Future work will focus on ensuring all NHS Trusts in England have updated their alignment to an updated CSTF.


National bodies and employers will be assured of a statutory/mandatory training standard i.e.

All Trusts aligned to the current nationally recognised CSTF.
Consistency in training standards and frequencies of refresher training/assessment.
NHS staff only complete necessary statutory and mandatory training, without unnecessary duplication.
Trusts only complete necessary processes to on-board, induct and train staff.
Savings in time and resources.
