What is the Skills for Health Mandatory Training Core Skills Training Framework?

Here at The Mandatory Training Group, we get many enquiries from healthcare and social care providers about 'Skills for Health aligned mandatory training' and the 'Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF)'. Some healthcare providers refer to this type of training as 'Skills for Health mandatory training' or simply 'CSTF statutory and mandatory training'. 

The Skills for Health's UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) is a set of standards for the provision of statutory and mandatory training in the healthcare and social care sectors. The CSTF primarily applies to NHS Trusts and related organisations such as private hospitals, general practitioners, walk-in clinics and other similar clinical services across the UK. 

Why was the Skills for Health CSTF introduced?

With a highly mobile workforce, the NHS and other healthcare employers often need to assess the quality of new workers' previous mandatory and statutory training. Often, the information is lacking, leading to healthcare professionals repeating training unnecessarily, thus wasting money and time. 

The Skills for Health UK Core Skills Training Framework addresses these issues. The CSTF allows NHS Trusts and other healthcare employers to recognise statutory and mandatory training to a recognised standard, trust that the information provided meets national standards and reduce unnecessary duplication of training.

Skills for Health extended the subjects on the Core Skills Framework for statutory/mandatory modules to include clinical/care subjects for health and social care support workers and healthcare assistants (HCAs). 

For each of the CSTF and clinical/care subject, Skills for Health have provided detailed learning outcomes, standards and guidance in the individual framework documents, mapping tools and subject guides. NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers can register to access the CSTF statutory.mandatory and clinical/care frameworks.

Skills for Health Training - Statutory and Mandatory Training programme

The Skills for Health's UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) set out 10 statutory and mandatory training subjects for all staff working in health and social care settings across the UK. The Core Skills Training Framework includes nationally agreed learning outcomes and training delivery standards for NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers.

The e-learning for healthcare courses were developed by Health Education and NHS and other healthcare subject matter experts to develop high quality, national e-learning training courses. These ELearning programs for NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers address all the agreed learning outcomes from level 1 to level 3. 

Organisational responsibilities for statutory/mandatory training

The e-learning courses are freely available to all health and social care staff whose organisations are registered. Healthcare and social care employers have a responsibility to ensure that all their staff have completed the appropriate statutory and mandatory training courses to comply with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and other UK regulatory requirements. Health and social care employers also have a duty to carry out training needs assessments and then decide the best way to deliver training/courses to their employees. The majority of health and social care courses can be delivered online, using an interactive e-learning portal. Other courses are better suited to be delivered face to face, using the traditional classroom training format. Most NHS Trusts and other healthcare and social care providers now use a combination of e learning and classroom training to deliver the statutory and mandatory training. Guidance on different ways of delivering training to health and social care professionals has been published by Skills for Health (UK Core Skills Training Framework). 

Interactive Statutory & Mandatory Training Courses for Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals

The Mandatory Training Group provides a wide range of interactive statutory and mandatory training courses for doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

Latest update to the UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF)

Skills for Health continues to honour its commitment to maintain and update the UK Core Skills Training Framework. This includes reviewing the statutory and mandatory training subjects in the CSTF. Since the original launch of the Core Skills Training Framework in 2013, Skills for Health have implemented three updates as follows:

  • Statutory/Mandatory Subject Guide v1.3
  • Statutory/Mandatory User Guide v1.3
  • Mapping Tool for Statutory/Mandatory subjects v1.3

The updates to the CSTF were done to ensure that key changes in the relevant UK legislation and guidance from regulatory and expert organisations are updated. These additions also provides health and social care providers with greater clarity regarding their obligations and compliance requirements. 

New Subjects added to the Core Skills Training Framework

Skills for Health have added a new mandatory training subject to the CSTF. Subject 8a: Preventing Radicalisation covers the core learning outcomes as required by 'Prevent', part of the UK Government's CONTEST counter-terrorism strategy. CONTEST aims to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist activities. Click here to see the CSTF aligned preventing radicalisation e-learning course

Why should healthcare professionals choose CSTF aligned e learning courses?

It is important for healthcare and social care professionals across the NHS and other healthcare providers to complete mandatory training that is aligned to the UK Core Skills Training Framework. The majority of NHS Trusts, private healthcare providers and locum agencies that supply healthcare staff through NHS frameworks now insist that all their staff should complete statutory and mandatory training that is aligned to the CSTF. 

By end of 2017, nearly 2,000 individuals had registered to access the Skills for Health's UK Core Skills Training Framework. Skills for Health also reported that 193 healthcare providers had formally declared their alignment to the CSTF. SKills for Health publishes a directory of NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers who are aligned to the CSTF. 

Which training and healthcare providers are aligned to the Core Skills Training Framework?

The majority of NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers provide their own statutory and mandatory training through their learning and development departments. Most of these organisations have mapped their in-house training courses to the Core Skills Training Framework. To qualify, NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers complete and submit a 'Declaration of Alignment', which confirms that their existing statutory and mandatory training programs are aligned to the CSTF subjects. Skills for Health then lists all aligned healthcare providers on the 'Aligned Healthcare Provider Directory'. The reason for sharing this alignment information is to enable NHS Trusts and other health & social care employers to recognise whether organisations that have delivered the training are compliant with the CSTF. Alignment to the framework is thus a way to prove that the statutory/mandatory training meets the standards accepted across all UK providers. Recognising training certificates as being CSTF compliant prevents the unnecessary duplication of training, thus saving time and money. 

The Mandatory Training Group's statutory and mandatory training courses are aligned to the UK Core Skills Training Framework (both classroom and online training courses). Click on the link below to see the full list of e-learning courses that are aligned to the CSTF:

The Mandatory Training Group - UK Core Skills Training Framework Declaration of Alignment “The Mapping Tool”

Which organisations are in the directory of aligned healthcare providers?

The Skills for Health's Directory of Aligned Healthcare Providers is open to 'not for profit' healthcare organisations across the UK, e.g., NHS Trusts who deliver in-house statutory and mandatory training to their staff. Other organisations in the CSTF directory include public sector education institutions that have incorporated the requirements of the UK Core Skills Training Framework within curricula. This aligned healthcare providers' directory should not be taken as a 'list' of approved providers and does not include commercial training providers.

Alignment of commercial training providers to the CSTF

The Core Skills Training Framework is open for any health & social care organisation or individuals to access. Commercial training providers complete their alignment to the CSTF through a self-assessment process using the Skills for Health mapping tool. The statutory and mandatory training courses and programs (whether complete through classroom training or e-learning courses) should be clearly be described as 'aligned to the CSTF'. This is an essential requirement for those healthcare professionals working in NHS Trusts and other clinical settings through NHS framework agencies, for example medical locums, agency nurses, locum allied health professionals and healthcare assistants (HCAs). 

Skills for Health does not require commercial training providers to submit their declaration of alignment to the UK Core Skills Training Framework. Consequently, training providers cannot imply or state any implicit assurances or claim endorsement from Skills for Health. 

Skills for Health has developed a new Core Skills Training Framework Directory of Commercial Training Providers/Suppliers. This CSTF represents an additional and optional level of quality assurance beyond the standard CSTF alignment by by declaration of alignment through self-assessment. Commercial training providers on the commercial providers' list will have their statutory and mandatory training course content verified by Skills for Health as aligning to the Core Skills Training Framework. 

The process of training content verification to the CSTF involves paying Skills for Health for the service depending on the number of statutory and mandatory training courses that need to be aligned. This can be arranged with the Skills Framework Manager. 

What are the benefits of UK Core Skills Training Framework alignment?

  • Linkages between the CSTF, E-Learning, WIRED compliance reporting and the Skills Register/Passport puts all the right information in the hands of employers in a new and powerful way

  • Using these tools together, data can be shared across the organisation, regions and networks in a cost effective way

  • New standards being added on a continuing basis including Dementia CSTF

How does the CSTF impact on your organisation?

The Core Skills Training Framework impacts on health and social care organisations in the following ways:

  • CSTF saves time and money by giving you the confidence to accept previous employers’ training and avoid over-training
  • Rationalise costs, training only those that need it
  • Once registered, employers can access the CSTF online, with support from the Skills for Health technical team
  • Healthcare and social care providers aligned to the Core Skills Training Framework may be included in the Skills for Health Directory – this helps avoid unnecessary duplication when organisations recruit staff from other organisations who are delivering CSTF compliant training

CSTF competencies on the NHS Electronic Staff Record (ESR)

Skills for Health added a suite of National Competencies based upon the CSTF to the NHS Electronic Staff Records (ESR). In England and Wales, the Core Skills Training Framework National Competencies can be used by NHS organisations utilising the ESR OLM functionality for recording and reporting training activity which has met the requirements of the CSTF.

    NB. The CSTF National Competencies on ESR must only be used by NHS organisations which have submitted their CSTF Declaration of Alignment to Skills for Health. The ESR Central Team provides quarterly reports to Skills for Health. These reports are audited to ensure that only those NHS organisations listed on the CSTF Directory are using the CSTF National Competencies on ESR.

    Comments from NHS Trusts using the Core Skills Training Framework

    Many organisations using the Core Skills Training Framework have commented on how they have benefitted from the CSTF. See below some comments from NHS Trusts about the CSTF:

    "It is an excellent guide to best practice and clarifies what all providers need to be delivering"

    "We feel it should become a statutory requirement and part of CQC and other auditors requirements"
    "I believe this framework makes statutory & mandatory training easily transferable"
    "Useful docs when linked to other similar national training and development standards such as the Intercollegiate Document (2014)"

    "We are still only part way through them but it has enabled us to "Re-brand" Statutory and Mandatory training for staff to a framework of core and essential skills that they must complete in order to fulfill their role"

    "We see the greatest benefit of the framework as providing consistency between providers meaning that training can be recognised when employees and healthcare students move between organisations"

    "I was delighted to see this initiative and think it is the best thing Skills for Health have done"

    "This has been a useful framework in enabling us to benchmark against other Trusts and clarify learning outcomes to ensure that over-training is not taking place"

    "Has significantly helped rationalise training both in terms of timing and frequency, it supported discussion at subject matter expert level"

      NHS organisations can register their organisations to access the Skills for Health Core Skills Training Framework for Statutory/Mandatory training. NHS Trusts, other healthcare & social care organisations and locum agencies can access check the validity of certificates on The Mandatory Training Group's CARE LMS portal.

      Person-Centred Approaches Core Skills Training Framework

      Health Education England commissioned Skills for Health in collaboration with Skills for Care to develop this Core Skills Education and Training Framework for Person-centred Approaches. Skills for Health launched the Core Skills Education and Training Framework in July 2017

      The value of a person-centred approach in health and social care is increasingly recognised and much has been written about what it is and why it is important. However, it is less clear how to develop the workforce to put this into practice, hence why the person-centred approach framework was developed.

      Skills for Health's Core Skills Education and Training Framework for Person-centred Approaches covers the following subjects:

      • Values
      • Core communication and relationship building skills
        • Step 1. Conversations to engage with people
        • Step 2. Conversations to enable and support people
        • Step 3. Conversations with people to collaboratively manage highest complexity and significant risk
      • Delivery of training, education and learning opportunities
      • ‘Enablers’ for embedding a person-centred approach.

      Which frameworks are being developed by Skills for Health?

      Skills for Health are currently developing the following Core Capabilities Frameworks:

      • Musculoskeletal Core Capabilities Framework
      • Frailty Core Capabilities Framework
      • Specialist Paramedics (Primary and Urgent Care) Core Capabilities Framework

      The purposes of these Core Capabilities Frameworks will now be discussed below. 

      Musculoskeletal Core Capabilities Framework

      Health Education England (HEE) and NHS England have commissioned the development of a Musculoskeletal (MSK) core capabilities framework. Development of the framework builds upon work previously undertaken by the national MSK Workforce Group and includes a Delphi consensus study undertaken by the University of Leeds. The project management group includes stakeholder organisations such as ARMA, HEE, PHE and NHS England.

      The MSK framework will set out the core capabilities for healthcare workers to deliver high quality, consistent and person-centred care for patients presenting to a first point of contact with musculoskeletal conditions. The framework will provide a standard structure and language in a multi-professional framework and enable greater consistency and portability in MSK core capabilities.

      An online survey to consult on the draft framework was completed from mid-October to mid-November 2017. The results of the consultation are now being analysed and further amendments made to the framework.

      Frailty Core Capabilities Framework

      Health Education England (HEE) and NHS England have commissioned the development of a Frailty Core Capabilities Framework. The framework will aim to identify and describe the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to deliver high quality, compassionate care and support. It will provide a single, consistent and comprehensive framework on which to base review and development of staff.

      Frailty remains a new area for much of the workforce and as such work is now needed to position frailty as a long term condition and underpin it with the upskilling of the workforce. The framework will build on, and be cross-referenced to existing core skills frameworks such as those for statutory/mandatory subjects, dementia, end of life care and person-centred approaches.

      The framework aims to describe core capabilities i.e. knowledge, skills and behaviours which are common and transferable across different types of service provision – including health, social care, local government and housing sectors. The framework will be applicable to employees, patients, carers, the community, the public and also to educational organisations which train students who will subsequently be employed in the workforce.

      Specialist Paramedics (Primary and Urgent Care) Core Capabilities Framework

        Health Education England has commissioned the development of a Specialist Paramedics (Primary and Urgent Care) Core Capabilities Framework. Development of the framework is steered by a project management group comprising stakeholder organisations such as Health Education England, NHS England, College of Paramedics and Skills for Health. The framework is due for completion by the end of August 2018.

        The framework will provide a definition of what a specialist paramedic in a primary or urgent care setting can do. It will provide a minimum standard for safe and effective practice within the professionals’ scope of practice e.g.

        • for governance – to provide a benchmark for service managers and commissioners and,
        • for education and training – to indicate minimum learning outcomes from education and training, linking with the existing College of Paramedics postgraduate curriculum.

        The development process will include a review of existing source documents (such as relevant curricula, frameworks and guidance) and development of a draft framework ready for wider consultation.
