    Course aims

    This Mandatory Training for Dentists e-learning package helps care home and domiciliary care staff to meet the UK statutory requirements. We are committed to keeping up to date with changes in relevant UK legislation, national directives and conditions on a mandatory training program to ensure that it reflects changing legal, risk and service needs.

    To that end, our Mandatory Training for Dentists modules are guided by the following:

    • Standards set by Skills for Care, Health Education England and UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF),
    • The Care Quality Commission (CQC) guidance for health and social care support workers, and
    • National guidance issued for locum care agencies and care recruitment agencies.

    *Each of the Mandatory Training for Dentists modules provide essential and adequate detail as suggested by UK regulators (including the Care Quality Commission (CQC)).

    Learning outcomes

    The UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) sets out 11 statutory and mandatory training topics for all staff working in health and social care settings. The CSTF includes nationally agreed learning outcomes and training delivery standards across all healthcare and social care settings.

    The Mandatory Training Group have worked with a range of subject matter experts to develop high quality, statutory and mandatory e-learning training sessions, which address all the knowledge outcomes at level 1 and 2 and at level 3, where appropriate for e-learning.

    These statutory and mandatory training courses sessions are suitable for all health and social care staff working across the various Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated organisations, including NHS and private hospitals, mental health, care homes and domiciliary care providers.

    It is the responsibility of individual health and social care employer organisations to ensure that their workforce complete the appropriate training to comply with their statutory and mandatory requirements. It is also an employer’s responsibility to determine the best mode of delivering the training, whether that is face-to-face, e-learning or a blended approach. The CSTF provides further guidance on this.

    This Mandatory Training for Dentists e-learning package meets the requirements of CQC regulated health and social care organisations.
