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.

General benefits from providing their employees with appropriate statutory and mandatory training include:
All health and social care workers have a responsibility to attend/complete mandatory training. In general, mandatory training or any other work-related training should be completed during work time. Where employers ask their staff to complete or attend mandatory training in their own time or on their days off, they should be compensated with equivalent time off. This also applies to those staff who work night shifts, weekend or other unsocial hours. Employers have a responsibility to ensure that all staff have been allocated enough time to attend mandatory training courses.
All work-related training should be counted as 'working time' under the Working Time Regulations 1998. As such, hours spent in practice should be included in the weekly/monthly hours.
Yes. If you are required to attend a training program for work, you must be paid for that time. For example, if your employer requires all new employees to participate in an orientation training or requires current employees to attend mandatory online training, that time must be paid.

Statutory training helps to keep health and social care staff up to date with the latest legislation, regulations, guidance and best practice recommendations. Statutory training also ensures that employees have the skills and knowledge to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for themselves, their colleagues and patients/service users.
