Our e-learning courses

skills for health logoSkills for Health’s suite of interactive, innovative and sector-specific e-learning courses makes it easy for your organisation to fulfil all of the latest statutory and mandatory training requirements.

The in-house development team works with industry leaders to ensure that new courses are always developed in-line with current topics and policies – including the Care Certificate, personal health budgets and dementia care.

Statutory and Mandatory UK Core Skills

With a highly mobile workforce, employers often need to assess the quality of new recruits’ previous training. Where information is lacking, people can repeat training unnecessarily, wasting time and money. The Core Skills Training Framework addresses this issue. It allows employers to recognise training to a standard, trust that information and reduce duplication of training. The original framework was released in 2013 and has since been maintained and updated. It covers ten statutory and mandatory subjects frequently required in the health sector:

Clinical/Care UK Core Skills

The Clinical Care Suite extends the original statutory/mandatory subjects in order to align with the educational elements of the Care Certificate. This is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the nonregulated workforce in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.

Primary care statutory and mandatory e-learning courses

Skills for Health’s primary care e-learning courses make it easy for your organisation to fulfil all of the latest statutory and mandatory training requirements. There is no need to worry whether your staff are compliant with the latest legislation and guidelines – we have all the relevant courses in one package for you. The courses have been developed specifically for primary care and use community-based scenarios that will be familiar to your staff. Our primary care elearning courses are compliant with the Core Skills Training Framework meaning all staff are trained to a common standard.

Other e-learning courses

Skills for Health’s other courses are designed to meet the needs of the sector, through high quality learning. Courses have either been developed by Skills for Health or are available in partnership with national organisations.

Care Certificate e-learning

Designed with the non-regulated workforce in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high-quality care and support. The Care Certificate is based on 15 standards, all of which individuals need to complete in full before they can be awarded their Certificate. For each of the Care Certificate standards below there is a link to the supporting e-learning course:
