What is a learning disability?

A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities (for example household tasks, socialising or managing money), which affects someone for their whole life.

People with a learning disability tend to take longer to learn and may need support to develop new skills, understand complicated information and interact with other people. The level of support someone needs depends on the individual. For example, someone with a mild learning disability may only need support with things like getting a job. However, someone with a severe or profound learning disability may need full­time care and support with every aspect of their life – they may also have physical disabilities.

Why is learning disability awareness training important?

It is essential that healthcare and social care workers have adequate understanding of the needs of people with learning disabilities. It is also important that they listen to the needs, hopes and aspirations of those living with learning disabilities, their carers, friends and families. 

What is the UK's ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, The Mandatory Training Group works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).

This includes mandatory training courses in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework – CSTF Statutory Mandatory Training Subject Guide Version 1.3 , Skills for Health Clinical Care UK Core Skills Training Framework Subject Guide April 2015 and other awareness courses for health and social care workers.

This online learning disability awareness course was developed in line with the CSTF learning outcomes.
