So what does mandatory training mean for health and social care professionals? Let's clarify what mandatory training means in general for health and social care sectors.
Mandatory is training is the training that a healthcare/social care organisation determines to be essential for safe and efficient practice and in order to reduce organisational risks and comply with policies, government guidelines etc.
Mandatory training is different to statutory training (which relates to complying with the law). However, some mandatory training may be determined as necessary to comply with the law. Mandatory training can arise from a variety of sources, such as local commissioning contracts and similar requirements. Organisation such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), General Medical Council (GMC) Skills for Health and Skills for Care may also recommend standards that health and social care workers should follow.
Statutory 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 statutory training as ‘essential’ or ‘compulsory’ training. Statutory training ensures that health and social care staff have the knowledge to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for themselves and their colleagues.
We often get asked “What is the difference between mandatory and statutory training?” - Mandatory training differs from statutory training as they are usually made compulsory by the organisation to ensure their employees are competent to reduce risks, follow guidelines and comply with their policies. Statutory training is required by law or a statutory body such as the Care Quality Commission has instructed the organisation to carry the training to meet legislative requirements.
All health and social care workers should complete this training. This includes, managers, senior support workers, care assistants, healthcare assistants and mental health workers.
There are a number of training courses that employees must undertake. This can be delivered in the workplace via daily or half daily sessions to meet operational requirements.
The Mandatory Training Group has developed various statutory and mandatory training courses for health and social care providers in Coventry and Warwickshire as well as other UK regions. These statutory and mandatory training courses covers the following modules:
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) can take regulatory action if health and social care providers do not meet the Regulation 18 requirements. It states that staff must receive support, training and personal development necessary for them to carry out their job role. Employees that have completed mandatory training course previously should undertake annual updates or refresher training to ensure they have the knowledge and understanding of changes in legislation and directives. Annual refresher training intervals will vary depending on the organisational requirements.
Organisations such as the General Medical Council (GMC) and the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) are the regulators in the healthcare sector for doctors and nurses. The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has provided guidance on the differences between mandatory and statutory training. Mandatory training requirements may vary depending on the job role and specific responsibilities of the employee.
Skills for Health have created the Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) for healthcare employers which provides guidance, mapping tools and learning outcomes to improve quality, reduce costs, track progress, consistency and standardisation of training.
The Clinical/Care UK Core Skills Training Framework includes the following training courses:
Mandatory training can be delivered to a group in a classroom environment such as a training centre by an experienced trainer which will cover both the theory and practical elements. Alternatively, you can purchase an online eLearning bundle which starts from as little as £8.99 per person, this would be suitable for individuals that need to learn the theory elements. You should always assess your employees including their training needs, learning styles and identify skills gaps which will help you choose the most suitable delivery method.
In most cases these courses provide an all in one solution, providing an overview of all the core essentials such as health and safety, safeguarding training, equality and diversity, moving & handling, fire safety and conflict resolution.
