Which Training Courses are Mandatory in Health and Social Care? We receive a considerable number of calls from clients, wanting to purchase the list of 'Mandatory Courses' for Health and Social Care staff. Clearly, this topic is causing a fair amount of confusion in the sector and so we hope this article will clarify the issue. Firstly we need to make this very clear: “There is no single list, which applies universally to every care provider.” Training is defined as mandatory if it meets one or more of the following criteria:* It is a statutory requirement. ** All staff across the organisation require the training. ** It is a CQC or local authority requirement.* Please note the guidance provided here is written for care providers in England. Care providers in the rest of the UK should contact the equivalent bodies in your country. Mandatory training is the training you are expected to provide for your staff following statutory requirements such as the Health and Safety at Work Act, requirements of your local authority, and the requirements specified by the CQC. All care organisations have a legal responsibility to provide staff with Health & Safety awareness training, including Fire Safety. Moving and Handling training is also mandatory and if staff are involved with preparing food or assisting at meal times then Food Safety and Hygiene training will also be mandatory. The table below highlights the main subjects recognised as Mandatory. Health & Safety - Statutory requirement (Health & Safety at Work Act 1974)Fire Safety - Statutory requirement (Health & Safety at Work Act 1974) + Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005Equality, Diversity & Human Rights - Human Rights Act 1998 + Equality Act 2010Infection Prevention and Control - Health & Social Care Act 2008: Code of Practice on the Prevention and Control of Infection and Related Guidance (Dec 2010)Manual Handling/Moving and Handling - Manual Handling Operations Regulations, 1992 as amended + Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, 1999Safeguarding Adults at Risk - Care Quality Commission (CQC)Safeguarding Children - Care Quality Commission (CQC) Optional/additional mandatory training modules include: Food Hygiene/Safety, Complaints Handling, Lone Working Awareness, COSHH, RIDDOR, Awareness of Mental Health, Dementia & Learning Disability, Mental Capacity (MCA) and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS), PMVA/MAPA (for those working in mental health settings) Documentation and Record Keeping among others depending on your clients' specific requirements or frameworks that you work with. There is a difference between the courses that would be considered mandatory for your organisation and the courses you will need to provide in order to be able to issue a Care Certificate. To receive a Care Certificate, your staff member will need to train in and achieve minimum pass marks in ALL the 15 standards. For experienced care staff, this will mean updating their knowledge and experience with the new terminology and practices as appropriate. Any new recruits, who have never worked in social care before, will need to be trained in all 15 standards before you can award them a Care Certificate.

Mandatory Training Courses for Health & Social Care

The Mandatory Training Group lists a wide range of mandatory training courses which are suitable for NHS workers such as nurses, doctors and dentists. These training courses are also beneficial to care staff working in the social care setting such as a CQC registered care home or domiciliary care agency.

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. Read our in-depth article for more details.

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.

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.

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.

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 around £19 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.

However, only those topics relating to your service provision included in the 15 Standards are MANDATORY for your organisation. Run a Training Needs Analysis to determine what these are, but if you are still not sure which training is required for your organisation, please contact Skills for Care and your local authority. They’ll be able to guide you through. More information is available from the CQC, Skills for Care and the HSE websites.

We also offer Mandatory Training bundles for Home Care and Care Home sectors which includes training for all these subjects at a discounted price. The courses considered mandatory for your organisation, will entirely depend on the care you provide and the person you support. There may also be additional requirements depending on your local authority.
