Is the ‘all in one day’ mandatory training still valid?

Yes the ‘all in one day mandatory training course’ is still valid but it is not aligned to the Skills for Health UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF). Many NHS Trusts and recruitment/locum agencies who supply nurses, doctors, AHPs and other healthcare staff to NHS hospitals and private sector insist that all staff should attend mandatory and statutory training that is aligned to Skills for Health’s UK CSTF.

As such, we recommend CSTF aligned mandatory training for all agency workers and locum doctors and AHPs working through NHS frameworks, including Health Trust Europe (HTE), Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and the National Collaborative Framework for NHS providers.

If you are unsure, please discuss with your employer, nursing or locum agency which training you require. MHC Training Solutions will not accept any responsibility of you select the wrong mandatory training option.
All AHPs, doctors and nursing staff whose job roles involve direct contact with children are also required to complete the Safeguarding Children Level 3 training course.

Mandatory training definition - what is SKills for Health CSTF?

What is mandatory training?

Mandatory training is a compulsory requirement that places responsibility on healthcare organisations and staff to work in a safe and efficient way to ensure the best outcomes for patients. Mandatory training enables medical, nursing and healthcare staff to be compliant with their statutory and mandatory training requirements.
All healthcare professionals (including NHS and non-NHS employees) are required to attend mandatory training, regardless of whether they are full time or part time, bank staff or permanent staff. The majority of statutory and mandatory training courses are delivered as part of induction training, then renewed annually afterwards as part of annual mandatory training updates or annual refresher training.
Skills for Health training for agency nurses & locum doctors -

Why is mandatory training required?

Mandatory training is a compulsory requirement for all health and social care staff, including all clinical NHS staff, non-clinical NHS staff, agency workers, bank staff (including part-time and full time staff). Care Quality Commission (CQC) expects all NHS and private health care staff to attend mandatory training in line with recommendations from Skills for Health, Skills for Care, National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), Resuscitation Council (UK) and other professional and regulatory bodies.

Both employers (including nursing agencies, care agencies and locum medical agencies) and employees have a responsibility to ensure that the mandatory and statutory training standards are met.

Is CSTF aligned mandatory training suitable for revalidation?

In April 2016, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) introduced a new system of revalidation for registered nurses and midwives practising in the UK. As part of their revalidation, nurses and midwives are required to show evidence of 40 CPD hours/points completed within each three year period.
MHC Training Solutions’ Skills for Health CSTF aligned mandatory and statutory training courses can be used by nurses and midwives to show as evidence of CPD hours when they complete their revalidation. MHC Training’s classroom based courses contribute towards nurses’ participatory learning.
Nursing staff who attend our CSTF aligned mandatory training practical days can use MHC Training Solutions’ certificates as evidence of their CPD.
